The people who like you are not your fans.
People who like you don’t think you are superior.
People who like you don’t put you on a pedestal.
Pedestals are for statues. An image frozen in time. A dead thing.
People who like you see you as an equal.
People who like you like the person you are.
Only you can be that person.
People who like you don’t try to be you.
Or follow the same path you followed.
People who like you are inspired by you to do what they believe.
Not what you would do. Not what you believe.
When a person is inspired by you to be who they are.
Not to spread your word, but to have the courage to speak their own words.
This is a declaration of love.
