I have learned that I can be challenging to live with. At the same time, I am very likeable, which makes it easier for people to be around me. I still hear Stuart Smalley’s daily affirmation in my head all of the time. “I’m good enough. I’m smart enough.
And doggone it, people like me.” It’s a funny skit but the affirmation is not without merit.
Not everyone likes me but I can manage without them like I have been doing for 30-something years.
