Absolutely. You don't learn valuable life skills from avoiding life but rather showing up for life everyday ready to take life on with all its challenges and vital life lessons. That's what makes a warrior with the battle scars to prove it. Amen.
I need to learn this lesson. I always seem to think that people are worth the time, and everyone has some good in them. But life is beginning to beat it into my skull that some people don't give a damn what good is buried in their depths, and are perfectly happy to live shallow, negative lives. Must stop trying to "reach out" to these people
