Every day we live under many constraints and responsibilities that require us to stick to schedules, rules and make us conform a certain image that we need to show the world.
But how much of ourselves do we really show? How much do we lose on the way? How much of that daily limited character is really our own self?
From time to time we all need to let ourselves go. We need to break from routine. We need to open the gate and let the horses run free. We need to go crazy sometimes, and release some steam in order to go back to be who we are required to be and to do what we are required to do.
Therefore we need to understand that people around us need it as well.
So let the horses jump about and run around. Then sit down, relax and watch them enjoy themselves and play.
We all know that we can count on few people when you’re having a hard time, but even fewer will be there when you need to be truly yourself. Only then, you’ll know who’s there for you and who’s not.
The people who are worth keeping in our lives are those who lean themselves against the gate, rest their chins on their hands, and smile while they eagerly watch our horses being free. Because they’ll know that’s what we need.
