Good Plan

Thinking

Me: I don’t think my friends respect me.
He: There are plenty of your friends that respect you, and love you.
Me: I don’t think that is true, I think love might be true.
He: That is definitely true.
Me: But I don’t think they understand and respect me.
He: Now you are just being greedy. Nobody is ever going to do both.
Me: I can only have one or the other?
He: Obviously. If they understand you, they will never respect you. If they love you, they can’t possibly understand you.
Me: What about respect?
He: In general I pretend people respect me, and then they do.
Me: Good plan.
He: I thought so, you are respecting it right now.
Me: Wow, that really works.
He: See?
