Not as in existing. But being there, for someone. Being their go-to person. Being a friend, being a pain in the ass, being the silver lining to their stormy clouds. It’s not easy. Its exasperating, it argh-inducing, but is sure worth it. The one text that you’re appreciated, the one knowing smile that is exchanged, the one hug, makes it all completely worthwhile. Because you know, no matter what happens, they’re going to be there for you too.
