I may be totally deluded or having a “senior moment” but I believe most people do try to live their lives by being the type of person that other people speak kindly of. I know I try to and I imagine you do too. Living your life, mindful of the feelings of others, showing kindness and compassion, being honourable in whatever you do, being loyal, all paints a picture of how the people you know “see” you. So, if your portrait does you justice and it’s one that people respect and admire, then woe betide anyone who speaks badly or disparagingly of you. Isn’t that a nice thought?
