Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art

so i’m lucky

I can list on one hand the people in my life that have confronted me with the truth, rather then let me go on thinking what I wanted or telling me what I wanted to hear. These people are gems, firmly grounded in a strong sense of self. Pleasant surprises in a society that breeds herd mentality and conformity (and seems to reward it too, at least on the surface). They are rare delights daring enough to take a stand, even amongst their closest friends.

And when there is no need to speak, they listen, intently.

Finding someone to agree with me is fairly easy. Finding someone to say no (and say it constructively) is hard, and it takes time, but its infinitely worth it.
