As children we grow up blind to those around us; who they really are. We see the good in people, not because we refuse to see the bad, but rather that’s the only side we ever see.
As we grow, we learn that’s not the case. We learn the reality that blood is not always thicker than water; that those who say they’ll never abandon you, will. We learn that if we wear our hearts on our sleeves it will come back broken and bruised, yet we still keep it out there.
As we grow, we learn to see the true colors of those around us.
