Seek to be worth knowing, rather than be well known. Anyone can be well known--some because of their bad, or negative, destructive behavior. But I'd rather seek to be someone worth knowing, that builds others up instead of tearing them down.
*sound of mental glass shattering* Pretty sure I do this (the latter example) and pretty sure I will NOT be doing it, now that I'm aware of it. <<< thank you for being willing to change something you may do that can be dehumanizing.
