“Seek to be worth knowing rather than be well known.”
Often times it seems to me that sometimes people can be consumed with being well known in one form or another. But I have to wonder, in what ways do our more personal relationships suffer?
Personally I try to put this into the perspective of my death. Now, of course, when I am dead, I am dead and all of this will no longer actully matter to me. However, if I had the choice, would I rather people miss me for superficial reasons? Or would I rather them miss me because they valued knowing me for who I truly was?
I think I would take a couple people who loved me for me than thousands of strangers anyday. ❤
