We often go through life asking those around us questions for them to tell us what we want to hear, and we go to these people to feel better. I have learned from previous discussions with you that I continue to talk to you and ask questions of you because you do not judge, but you also don't bullshit you tell me the "raw truth.” * What do I like best about you: your spirit, your heart and your honesty * The thing I like best about you is your sweet nature.
