We are two women... in our thirties each with a different story. We have been friends for 17 years. We have seen the highs and we have seen the lows in eachother's lives.

One more quote from that chapter... "Since you're on the wrong side of your eyeballs, you can't always see exactly what it is that you're doing that works or doesn't work."
Do we seek feedback often enough? REAL feedback. Not, you're my friend so make me feel better feedback - but you're my friend so tell me the truth kind of feedback.
