Haru and English part 1
…so much as it was what Rin DIDN’T say.
Everyone tried to talk to Haru and push him into a decision (even Rin at one point), but this time, Rin let HARU make the choice, in a stress-free environment while Rin was there for him.
This was the FIRST TIME that Haru had the chance to make a completely independent decision and this HAS TO BE ACKNOWLEDGED.
It was probably in this moment that Haru was finally able to fully appreciate the words of not just Rin, but ALL OF HIS FRIENDS, and realize they didn’t say what they did to pressure him, but to encourage him. For the first time, Haru probably felt ENCOURAGED, and not pressured. This left him the space and peace of mind to decide that maybe professional swimming is not as scary as he thought it was.
Haru does not have everything figured out, his anxiety is not magically gone, he’s probably still really scared— JUST LIKE RIN WAS WHEN HE FIRST CAME TO AUSTRALIA TO PERSUE HIS DREAM— He was scared, but he was HOPEFUL.
Haru didn’t have hope for the future before. And now he does.
Furthermore, Rin did not fix Haru’s problem, Rin gave Haru the opportunity to fix his own problem.
What makes Haru happy is knowing that all of his friends have supported him and loved him. Haru now can finally see that they do!
CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT HOW ONLY RIN IS CONCERNED ABOUT THAT ?? AND THAT HARU WAS READY TO SLEEP WITH HIM ??
We’re not giving up.
