“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” ― Maya Angelou
Maya Angelou is one of my life guru’s. She was so wise and lived through so much. But the older I get the more this statement resonates with me. As I chop away at my inner circle and shed fake friendships this is the question I ask myself, “how do they make me feel?”. Not just a man in an amorous relationship, but it’s important to check the platonic ones as well. This is something I’ve come to realize in the last two years of my life. “Time is money”, is what I love to say. When you give your time to people who don’t value you, not only is it like wasting money, but you also give them something they did not earn nor deserve. So now whenever I get a call, I ask myself this question before I answer. Let’s just say, I’ve been answering for fewer people these days.
