Traits we label as "negative" aren't the end-all when it comes to someone's value.
Same thing applies to possibly more costly traits:
You and I are at least one of these things. But we're good.
- Cranky, but good.
- Ignorant, but good.
- Dangerous, but good.
The older I get, the more I find myself valuing goodness over all other traits. Maybe we all could see it in each other if we just took the time to make the real connection.
