Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
This is to each and every one of you.
I trust that we share a level of openness and honesty appropriate for our friendship. I trust that you hold me accountable to that. And I trust that I can do the same for you. I respect you as a person, and in turn I think you respect me as a person, it’s a natural part of the relationship.
To speak blatantly, I’m writing to you like this right now, because I would like to lay out an open invitation. I’m writing to implore you to challenge me when I need it. I trust you to know when that is. I might not like what you have to say, but I want you to say it. Always. If ever you see me running, I want you to trip me, throw obstacles in my path, call me out. Don’t let me off thinking I made the right decision, when really it was the easy decision. I don’t want to be the girl that heard opportunity knocking and was too chicken to answer the door. You probably already know that, and obviously I do, but someday I might need a reminder.
I value honesty above all else. And I hope the day never comes that I let that slide because I’m not strong enough to hold it up. No matter the consequences (real or imagined), I want always to be honest with myself, and honest with you.
So be honest with me, I might not love you for it in the moment, but I will love you even more for it later.
