it’s all about relationships

If you want to find yourself, you need to lose yourself in the lives of other people.
– My Philosophy professor

Relationships with other people are more important than being right.
– My boss at work, Fred. 

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.
– Mother Teresa

Being angry with someone decreases your quality of life, ya know? 
– My friend Taylor (and he probably doesn’t even remember when he said that to me, but I won’t forget it because I always try to remember it when someone is annoying me 🙂 )

When the Lord requires that we forgive all men, that includes forgiving ourselves. Sometimes, of all the people in the world, the one who is the hardest to forgive—as well as perhaps the one who is most in need of our forgiveness—is the person looking back at us in the mirror.
– Dieter F Uchtdorf

– Karina, who always tells us that she loves us, and so I try to say it more too.

It really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated. We are all caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tired into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one destiny, affects all indirectly.
– Martin Luther King

And that, my friends, it what makes life worth living.  Loving others.  Serving them.  Understanding them.  Empathizing with them. Forgiving them.
And I’m telling you – when you’re having a bad day, think about the people you love and why you love them.  Connect with them and then show them that you love them.  Say I love you every once in a while.  Do an act of service.  Give a hug.  Write a nice note. You know,  it’s all about relationships.
As I have loved you, love one another.
– Jesus.
