You will always remember that person who said you were special.
Those magic words lit you up from the inside out.
Especially if you’ve never ever felt special before.
Because who doesn’t want to be considered special?
And with those words all the doors to the kingdom are unlocked.
Like a princess in a dream, you are instantly transformed. Now you look out at the world through rose colored glasses.
Until one day those glasses are broken into sharp little pieces.
Ultimately “you are special” can become the most costly words ever to be uttered. Because of what you would do for that person who said them.
Like a drug it gets into your system and the addiction leads the way. To do more and believe more and throw caution to the wind.
Because feeling special is such an enticement that it takes over your senses.
But in the end, decades later, the words cause you to feel sick. You know you would blindly have followed “you are special” to the ends of the earth.
So was it worth it to be queen for a day? Only to feel like a fool for the ages?
