As people, we are emotional sometimes. Sometimes all we want is for that one person to give us approval for the feelings we are feeling inside, whether right or wrong, good or bad. Knowing this is generally true about ourselves, we must be willing to give careful consideration to the words people spew to us, especially when they are spewing out pieces of their hearts.
Note that it is always important to be honest with the people around you, but it is also almost equally important to be kind to the people around us.
Respect the way that a person feels by being honest with them and yourself, and never taking for granted their feelings. You never know, one day the shoes that you once saw someone else wearing, may be the next pair of shoes that you will be wearing. Never take anything for granted, especially someones feelings.
