As a real estate agent, I believe there's a parallel between selling homes and building relationships.If you don't put any energy into maintaining a building, it will at some point, fall apart. You need to support the foundation, repair cracks, and put energy into a building. That's like relationships. You need to maintain your relationship and deal with and fix issues to keep the foundation strong. And remember that you have an impact on all the people around you. A good friend of mine once told me that our touch ( or imprint) on others doesn't fade.I think that is true, whether the imprint is from a slap or from a hug. Love and be loved, and ensure that your imprint reflects that.
