Some of the saddest words ever spoken are heard at funerals: “I hope he knew how much he meant to me,” or, “I wish I’d told her more often how much I loved her.”
Love is not blind; it has an extra spiritual eye that sees the good and possibilities that others cannot see.
Focus on problems from the angle of “how can we fix this” rather than “who’s to blame.”
Be yourself! No one will be disillusioned when they discover the “real you,” if that’s what they’ve known and loved all along.
