Important changes are taking place within you and others may not be able to understand what is going on. In friendship, it is worthwhile explaining yourself to create greater understanding. If you are invited to a function, you need to consider dressing more elegantly. Sure, comfort is preferable, but the circumstances may demand a sacrifice. Its time for someone else to put up or shut up. You know, if you allow others to take advantage of you without demanding they treat you with a measure of respect, they will never afford you the honour you deserve. Continuing to help someone who lacks appreciation is telling on your own lack of self respect.
I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do. - Leonardo da Vinci
