As we share our work – our lives – with others, we have an option. We can take people with us on that journey, or we can go it alone.
We are always connected to everyone, even the people who are no longer with us on our journey. Some people might choose not to join us. That's fine (it might sting a little bit). They may wander off, find something more or less.
But the people who continue on with us, the people who are there... those are the people who can foster deep and true connections. Those are the people who can push us to become better. Those are the people who we may admire, respect, love, care for.
Who is with you now? Who do you want with you?
