Ever feel like you’ve known someone for such a long time that you get too comfortable? You forget to ask the important questions. Forget to find out where their mind is. You just assume you know them so well and you forget that people change, their dreams and priorities change, they grow. Change is inevitable. You need to keep learning about the people you love and what they love because you can lose them thinking you have history and you really know who they are. Maybe you did but have you tried to find out who they’ve become?
“We did that often, asking each other questions whose answers we already knew. Perhaps it was so that we would not ask the other questions, the ones whose answers we did not want to know.”
― Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Purple Hibiscus
