That Person.

Tuesday, 22 July 2014

We meet people, we connect, we make memories. Some memories are unique to each person. Some details are irreplaceable. We associate different things with different people. This is what this post is for. If I happen to write about you in this post, hello. You are that person.

Remember when I was called horrible names online? You will always be that person who stood up for me when everyone else didn't.  I'm thankful to this day that I had you. At that point I was so powerless and humiliated, I couldn't even stand up for myself.

You will always be that person who didn't congratulate me when I achieved what I thought was the greatest achievement of my life. You were supposed to be the happiest person when you first heard the news, instead you sounded like it didn't matter to you.

The first time I really had to go the hospital it was already late at night and we were on the phone, I told you "I'm having the worst headache and I can't stop shaking",
after we ended the phone call I went straight to the hospital, thinking that you must've been worried I told my mom to call you, instead you were sleeping. You will always be that person. I can't lie I was shocked. There's never a genuine emotional connection between us, though, and I made peace with that a long time ago.

You will always be that person who watched Coldplay with me through Skype after their 2-year hiatus. I was so excited I jumped out of bed and I remember you were genuinely excited that morning, you don't even listen to Coldplay but you know the band means the world to me and I told you "Thank you. It really means a lot." You can't fake connections like that. It was such a tiny detail but sometimes it's the little thing that matters.

You will always be that person who asked me if it's okay for you to give me a kiss. (OMG so cheesy) But no one else does that, ever. That memory is unique to you only.

You never know what people are going to remember you for. How do you want to be remembered? What's special about you? To me this says that I need to be the best version of me everytime I meet people, because I want to be that person, but not that person. It doesn't mean that this particular memory is everything about that person, there are a thousand other memories, but these details that are unique to a person, you can't replace that. Other people aren't going to make the same memories with you. They will always be that person. You will always be that person.
