Seeing the Potential

She'd kept quiet in the meeting long enough.  This was the 3rd time KSL had been made fun of for basically being himself.  She wanted to text him that she wished everyone else saw in him what she saw because he was an amazing guy.  She didn't of course, because a text out of nowhere like that would only make it seem that she was drunk or she had heard people talking shit about him.  Why did no one see how hard he was trying?

Instead, after a lot of thought, she texted PJ.

"Do you think we see people at their full potential instead of who they actually are at that moment?"

"Yes.  Sometimes.  I also think we see people as they actually are when the rest of the world sees their unrealistic potential."

"Me too!  I don't know if that's good or bad for us though, in the end."

"I think it's a curse personally.  The only exception to that is if the very few in this world that we are closest to can benefit from that insight.  I feel like that's where I'm finally at in life now, which means it's hard to reflect upon all previous years as being anything other than a complete waste.  Perhaps too negative, but that's definitely how I feel."

It was so amazing how well he understood her.
