The Definition of Us
first published March 29, 2015
Love is defined not only by the emotions we feel for others but by how others feel about us.
We each make our choices about who we want to be. Shall we be the kind of person whom others feel joy to keep close to their hearts, even after we long are out of their lives? Will we be entirely forgettable, leaving little impression on those whose lives we’ve crossed? Will we be the person who causes others anticipate the relief of no longer feeling anything for us? Do we uplift those around us or prop ourselves up at the expense of others?
And it is from these basic choices that our actions flow. And from these actions, grow our character.
