Do not waste time focusing on those who flee at the first signs of a challenge. They very likely did you a favor.
Be weary of those who stay nearby for no good reason. Focus on the intent of their actions rather than the content.
Cherish those who remain close out of love regardless of life’s twists and turns. Investing in their well being will pay emotional if not, or possibly in addition to, material gains in the end.
Respect all, love all, hold a precious few in close confidence.
