Everybody needs a guardian angel to help them through tough times and to let them know that someone cares. Like in the song Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, you don't have to have wings and a halo to be someone's guardian angel. You just need to love and care for that person. This article will explain how you can do just that.
First of all, you may want to remember what a guardian angel is. Listen to the song Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, or watch the movie City of Angels for inspiration.
Think about how they portray guardian angels. In City of Angels, Nicolas Cage plays Seth, the admiring, loving angel who longs to be with Maggie, to feel as she feels. And so, he becomes human, abandoning a life without sorrow or pain, just to be with her. In Your Guardian Angel, the chorus goes,"I will never let you fall. I'll stand up with you forever. I'll be there for you through it all, even if saving you sends me to Heaven." Both the movie and the book depict a self-sacrificial love.
Think of how you can do these things for someone else. How can you be there for him/her all the time? How can you show that no matter what, you will always care for and love them? Contrary to the depictions in City of Angels and Your Guardian Angel, the one a guardian angel watches over doesn't necessarily have to be a romantic love interest. This person could be a friend, a relative, a child, etc. After all, we all need a guardian angel.
When he/she is upset, let him/her cry.
When he/she needs a shoulder to cry on, be that shoulder.
When he/she loses hope, assure him/her that it will all be okay.
Never fail to show that you care. Whether you do something to express it like you write it out, or you come straight out and say it -- showing that you care is the most important thing you can ever do for someone.
Even a guardian angel needs his/her own guardian angel. Understand that you can't always be the one who is comforting another. It's a two-way street.
When you feel down, he/she should do as much for you as you have done, but don't expect it unless you had an understanding. If it is not obvious, let your guardian angel know what you need, or just ask for a favor without feeling that your friend must do this for you.
To avoid being hurt don't expect too much, but instead be glad that you did your part -- and let your potential guardian angel have freedom to decide whether to show gratitude or not, and when.
