One of the truest, positive effects my friends have on me? They inspire me to stretch. Not all have this effect, but in a few cases, they certainly do.
When I mean stretch, in this case, it’s stretching beyond who I am most of the time; stretching my perspective, my belief.
It feels very empowering.
I’m not sure exactly why it happens. At least on the face of it I’m not sure. I’ll ponder a bit and see what other insights I can share.
Regardless of the why, one thing for sure I know, stretching feels good.
