"One day you will ask me which is more important? my life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life." ~Khalil Gibran
Here's the thing .... I think it is hard for us, in this world, to make another person's life our own. We can, however, strive to understand others and be respectful of their lives, of what makes them who they are. I believe when we do that we open our eyes, in fact, our hearts, to making theirs as important as our own. In that way, we make the world a better place. If I make your life my own, how can I do wrong to you?
You are my life.
You are not ALL my life.
But your life is as important as my own.
