For the friends who have used their power and influence over others wisely, I admire you. For the ones who haven’t, you taught us to become wiser in our choice of friends. Today is a day to celebrate those who continue to bring a smile on your face. Happy days to you. Yes you. You know who you are.
Don’t underestimate how powerful you are in your relationships. You can empower someone else, share their misery and pain, encourage their dreams and protect them from harm. By the same token, you also have the power to destroy them, neglect their existence, break their spirit, betray their trust, attack their self worth and esteem. Use your presence to uplift, nurture and love others. Humanity demands that you be gentle, dignified and kind.
