It’s one thing to be with others and it’s another thing to be with yourself. We don’t see us much, do we? In photographs or in the mirror, we see snippets of who we are. We see our clothes on the floor, our dishes in the sink, but we don’t see ourselves moving through time like we see others. We see other people’s faults easy enough, but our own can stay hidden from us for a lifetime. I think that’s why we need friends. We need the people around us to help us know who we are. You have to find a voice that shows you a good view of yourself. Friends who encourage your growth, who are with you on your journey also help you to see who you are to others. Animals seem to know who the good people are. They gravitate towards the warm and loving people. The warmth inside of you helps to warm others. Take a look at yourself today through the eyes and actions of the folks around you. If cats and dogs seem to like you, I’d say you’re on the right track. You started as a baby and now you are a grownup. What you’ll be remembered as depends on what you do next.
