be the bigger person

by chloepeh

if someone seems to be acting like a bad guy,
maybe it’s because they really love you.
maybe they have to do something that you might not like,
because it’s better for you.
like how one parent gets to be a good guy,
but the other has to be the bad guy,
that kind of love.

if someone seems to be acting cranky,
maybe it’s because things have been rough on them.
the last thing they need is another conflict.

i wish my imaginary cat won’t take things so personally when i’m in a bad mood.
it’s not because i’m mad at her,
it’s usually because i’m mad at myself, i’m mad at everything.
