I can remember being very young and “working things out” between friends.

Do you think every little thing you do is magic? I doubt it! There’s always room for improvement. Sometimes there’s more room in areas for some than for others. Are you as good a listener as you’d like to be? Do the people you love think so? Are you thoughtful? When you come up with [...]
