See how that doesnt work? The message we wind up sending is that our behavior our words and possibly the direction our life takes are dependent upon what someone else does or says. We are saying Im not going to do my part if you dont do yours.
"In the end we only regret the chances we didn't take." So be risky because you would rather look back and say I can't believe I did that instead of I can't believe I didn't do that. I do regret that amazing chance that I didn't take.
