we don’t need you

We don’t need your presence when we’re sick, we don’t need your comfort when we’re sad, we don’t need your help when we’re building our ikea table, we don’t need your suggestion when we’re facing a problem.

We might need some presence when we’re sick, but we don’t need it from anyone. We need it from the people we care.
If something good happens to us, like the birth of a child, we don’t need everyone to pass by right after the fact, take your time.

We don’t need your comfort when we’re sad, we might need your presence when we’re blue. We might need time to build an ikea table and we’re likely to be happy taking some wrong turns doing it because that’s the joy of learning.

And yes, we would like to listen to your suggestion, but we’re not obliged to, so if it’s not a good time, silence is still golden.
