Don’t speak.

Don’t move.

Don’t blink.

Don’t even breathe.


Don’t insult.

Don’t threaten.

Don’t lecture.

Don’t even open your mouth.


Don’t gild truth.

Don’t ignore.

Don’t tell her to ‘suck it up’

Don’t even send her fake e-mails of false hope.


Don’t threaten.

Don’t lie.

Don’t show up for two days then disappear.

Don’t even say you love her just to prove a point, or win a fight.

Show her that she means something to you.

Give her words of truthful hope, and guidance.

Please, give her something to prove that she is worth saving.


That means holding your tongue.

That means not switching the conversation to you.

That means not trying to analyze ever word she says.

Please, trust that she knows what she’s doing.


Being so hard on yourself.

Making up problems obviously fake.

Talking to her about people she would rather forget.

Please, take time from your oh-so-busy day and




And Love
