Who will get in the last word of encouragement?
This is my personal challenge to myself as I work on building great relationships with people. I think it's safe to say that one of my life's biggest goals is to become a great conversationalist and servant to people - to be a stay-in-touch master who builds a huge network of people. I spent all my life not staying in touch with people because of fears of people getting too close to me not liking me. But, getting over a fear like that opens up a floodgate of wonderful relationships just waiting to happen.
Acceptance is key.
