That’s an awesome point. I totally agree. I didn’t intend the article as a checklist, and that if each person in your life doesn’t meet every single one, it must mean they don’t value you, and to dump them swiftly.
Humans are flawed. We all have both good and bad in us. Even the best of us make mistakes, and in moments, may not act as though we value someone when really, we do.
I meant it more as a general list of ways people showcase value and respect for one another.
Thank you though, both for reading and for your thoughts. It’s a great and valid point!
