Friday 56 & 7 Habits

When he reaches those critical teenage years, the identity crisis, will he know from his experience with you that you will listen without judging, that you really, deeply care about him as a person, that you can be trusted, no matter what?
- p. 56, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Steven R. Covey

I have a ratty copy of this stashed away. And I keep coming back to this book ... because questions like that just pop out at me. Then I get all contemplative.

Isn't hard to find someone who will ask you those questions that are just begging to be asked ... and answered? This book is like the shrink you always needed. Or the best friend who isn't afraid of your reaction, however adverse it may be. Sometimes we need someone to push their hard love on us.

Happy weekend all!

    Here's my Friday Meme post:

  4. I had to read this book for a college course I did a while back and just couldn't get into it. Maybe that was because of the way we had to approach it, I really can't remember. Maybe I should go back to it again some time and see what I think now. I think I still have it somewhere as I don't often get rid of books!
