Wish I could say I don't need anything or anyone. Sometimes you just have to remove yourself from the equation by disregarding the relationship. When characteristics aren't a good fit, it's nice to know that, even though the night is cold, I've got a hand to hold. I've got my (BFF)...
#MyYoungBuck, perhaps as quickly as I complain about my young buck, I should eloquently express words of encouragement instead. It's true, over the years he's been a little rough around the edges at times, but for the most part he's been exceptionally good to me. So much so that when another guy comes along and tries to make me believe that I will need him before he needs me... well, that's when my young Buck steps in to make sure that I want for nothing, and when I say nothing, I do mean absolutely NO-thing!
So, I started dating this guy. This guy I met back in 2012 which my young buck never met. This guy was kind, but reclusive, so I decided to dump him. Nothing over the top, nothing too serious, but it was getting to be a tad over indulgent. Since he was a nice guy I guess he figured, I will need him before he needs me. Who needs that when you're not sure if you should even take this guy seriously in the first place? There were so many unanswered questions. So he made himself history.
My young buck on the other hand...
My young buck on the other hand...
Our comradery reminds me that as long as he's alive, I will never be alone. Being around him fills this emotional void that might otherwise be problematic. Laughing with him is second nature, and we are really good at reading each other's body language. Although this young man isn't a rich man, if I want for anything, my Buck has matured to the point where I don't even have to ask. No longer do we take our friendship for granted.
When the truth hurts, he makes the pain go away. This dude will fight sleep because he refuses to leave me alone at a time when he know's I shouldn't be. It’s rather hilarious to watch him doze off. One night he woke up and said, “I’m not sleep I’m watching the movie, even though the movie is really watching me.” Then he started snoring and within a matter of seconds he fell right back into a deep sleep. He won't leave my side until I go to bed.
The stroke of midnight 2017 was different for us this year. Somehow we both wound up alone, but it didn't take him long to get here that day, and so I call him Buck, because he's my young Buck. Then he started calling all of his younger friends Buck, but what I think is so cool -- it's that I'm older than he is, but he calls me his young Buck too. We call each other Buck. It may sound corny, but when you have a best friend for life, that's what you do. You set trends, make pacts, and support each other's future endeavors.
So this Sunday we've got a meeting to set some goals for the year. I know that if I take care of him he will continue to take care of me. At the end of the day, it's just nice to know that you've got someone who will be there for you when the going gets tough.
Back in 2014 he brought me a set of electronic drums for Christmas.
"So, hey we brought our drum and this is how we dance no mistaken'. We make our breaks, if you don't like our 808's, then..."
#myyoungbuck, I'm well protected, he shares and never takes advantage (considerate, compassionate, generous, strong, etc.). My safe haven, my retreat. So hey, that's my young buck. We make our own rules.
Always with each others best interest at heart…
