The goodness of the whole

How often do we let one conversation define a relationship? A paucity of words or “one word too many” can begin erosion of what has taken years to build. Words can be wounding and their absence deafening. One thing said or done may leave us off kilter, but only momentarily. We seek balance. We cannot be stuck in a moment in time. Let us go forward remembering, living and loving the goodness of the whole. — Tanya Goodman

 

A person isn’t who they are during the last conversation you had with them — they’re who they’ve been throughout your whole relationship.

— Rainer Maria Rilke
