words to live by…

i received this quote below, inside an e-mail, alongside some beautiful introspection:

“Treat everyone as if they are small children–small children in a
hospital.”

yes, yes and yes to this.

and please, please, leave folks (if you must) in better shape than you found them. [douchebags of the world, are you listening?]

don’t leave them bruised and battered and emotionally scarred after they’ve become vulnerable to you. for heaven’s sake. please. and not just like mola ram extracting a sacrificial heart in “indiana jones  and the temple of doom”. too frequently i’ve been seeing this happening to wonderful ladies in my life (myself included). & i (and they) are so over it.
