Call me Reliable

From now on I want to surround myself by more reliable people. Reliable people . . .

  • Show up to your bachelorette party even though they were battling a stomach virus all day. 
  • Don't make excuses.
  • Make your dinner date even though work was hard that day and they will have to go back to the office after. 
  • Arrive on time or call if they are running late due to circumstances beyond their control.
  • Come into work even though it feels as though someone is literally stabbing them.  
  • Are conscientious because they know all of their actions have ripple effects for other people. 
  • Do not rsvp yes or verbally agree to attend an event and then send regrets.
  • Make life fun and easy
Unreliable people 
  • Think their problems are more important than everyone else's.
  • Dishonest by definition.
  • Take others for granted.
  • Make life much more difficult than it has to be.
  • Are intrinsically selfish.
We all have problems.  We are all busy.  I've dealt with more than my fair share of unemployment, funerals, heartbreak and illness and through it all I have still managed to honor my commitments.
