Substituting Engagement

On the internet we can promote, like and comment. Often times we mistake these gestures as real successes or relationship building.

It’s passive, easy and done by many. The road is beaten down and well paved. 

The type of relationships that matter are built upon by showing up, supporting their work and/or emotional state and helping them win. It’s the most selfish selfless thing you can do. 

I often stub my toe on the unpaved parts of this road - but it’s pavement worth creating.
