I’m always thinking about the long run.
If I make a new friend, I’m thinking about how their kids will one day call me, “Aunt.”
If I’m dating someone, I’m not thinking about just being with them to pass time. I’m thinking about how cute we’re going to look when we grow old and continue to do weird things together.
If I invest my time in someone it’s for a reason. It’s cause I want them in my life.
(Good) People aren’t temporary.
