  • Be cautious with criticism, and be tolerant.
  • Accept them for who they are, even if you do not approve of everything.

Cultivate Transparency
  • If we are more humble than a facade, if we build more windows than walls, we will have more friends.
  • Get acquainted with the hidden section in your mind that contains memories of mean selfish impulses that terrify us, that erupt occasionally.
  • Dare to take the initiative of self-revelation, sharing, and opening up.
  • This does not allow your emotional life to be an open book. You must decide how much of yourself to reveal.
  • Be sure to exercise caution, as to not damage the listener.
