There are people who notice you only when you shine, or when you fall into the darkness. Not the average you. Not the mediocre you. But the great you, or the not-so-great you. The people who are worthiest of your care are not those who only notice you at your best and worst but those who see you at all time.

They don’t need an excuse to love you. They don’t need an excuse to talk to you, or to ask you how you are doing. They don’t need an excuse to share their happiness with you. They don’t need an explanation. They give you one without you asking for it.

They assume the good in you before the bad. So keep your eyes open just so you don’t miss those people. Once you find them, never let them go because those are not just friends but family members. They’re life companions. They are people who will tell you when you are wrong simply because they’ve allowed themselves to tie their well-being to yours.

This quote from Najwa Zebian’s amazing book Mind Platter made me smile, physically and emotionally.

“The people who are worthiest of your care are not those who only notice you at your best and worst but those who see you at all time.”

This reminds me of the Sawubona principle. People truly see you for who you are, not the title you possess or because you are famous.

Such people are rare.

Such people are good for you.
