Getting talked over is one of the most frustrating and discouraging things a quiet person could experience.
Having to repeat ourselves is one of the last things we want to do in a conversation.
But, building relationships is a 2 way street.
It’s in your power (as much as theirs) to form meaningful conversation and dialogue, because both of you have something important to say (one not being more important than the other).
It’s so easy to get lost in somebody else’s visions of success and happiness.
As the days pass, what are we really looking for when we go to school? When we apply to graduate studies? When we apply to several hundred jobs on the market?
Using somebody else’s north star is not the same as finding your own.
More is fun and easy to swallow.
Losing is when we feel sadness, anger, frustration, and regret.
In our circle of relationships, it’s easy to take for granted all that you have.
