To Be Held

Sometimes you need to be held. Really need to, a deep need that runs through your body all through to the very core of your emotions, somewhere deep inside that odd squiggly chemical thing that is our brain. Sometimes things, no matter how small and insignificant, feel like too much. Sometimes just knowing you’re going to have to wake up the next morning is too much.

Those are the times when you need to be held most of all. When you’re lonely, you want someone there, sure. When you’re angry or depressed, you need someone to anchor you as well. But sometimes there are just these moments of pure and utter hopelessness. You know it’ll pass. It’s just a mood. Just another chemical being processed through your brain. It doesn’t mean anything. Tomorrow you’ll wake up and work and do everything you need to do, just like any other day.

But it’s just that, well, sometimes someone holding you makes everything better, at least for one, priceless, endless moment. And that moment can keep you going.

  1. This is so filled with passion and feeling. I liked this a lot: But sometimes there are just these moments of pure and utter hopelessness. You know it’ll pass. It’s just a mood.

    Great post with muchooo feeling.

  2. I totally agree. Very well put! And if we would just acknowledge the fact that sometimes “we just want to be held” we would put an end to a lot of confusion and misunderstanding. Me and Lotta were joking a while ago about making tees with statements. This would surely be one. Hugz.

  3. Thank you so much, Joy! I’m really glad the sentiment came through in this, I was rather worried it would seem very cliche-ish.

    Inwardsun, I’m glad you enjoyed this as well. That is definitely a good t-shirt statement! I think it would draw too many males over with arms open though :P.
