I value the people in my life because they're such a hodge podge, such a variety. They illuminate my life in all shorts of different perspectives and experiences. At the end of the day, I remember more about what my friends were quiet about than what my critics shared about me. Silence from those you love is either a comfort or a killer. I pay attention to where people are or how they react in their (or my) hardest moments, not just their best. It's easy to enjoy someone on their tough days. Look where they are on the tough days, that really defines someone as a person.
If you're reading, it would be nice to have some "perspective". You can leave the comments anonymously if you're concerned. Constructive criticism is an important stepping stone in this life. Thank you for continuing to bless my life.
