I'd encourage everyone to take a moment and think about their closest friends and family. These relationships are so important in our lives and I think often the most turbulent. Imagine how awesome our lives would be if we could better those important relationships. .
The most insulting and hurtful thing you can do to someone you love is to leave them with the impression that their time was wasted. I'm not talking about anything or anyone specific, it's just something dwelling on my mind tonight. Make sure that you make those people that you love and care about feel that they are loved and cared about. Be respectful to them and don't disregard anything that they think is important to talk with you about. Personally if I ever feel the need to talk to someone about something that I care deeply about or am passionate about, I expect (as I think we all do) to be taken seriously or at least heard out. I'm not a close minded person, in fact I'm very open minded to new points of view, but I still have my beliefs and thoughts. It hurts to finish talking with someone and feel emptier than before because they didn't care or weren't respectful of yourself and your time. I encourage everyone to take this to heart, and you can listen to me as little or as much as you want, but I think that if you apply a sense of love and respect to your relationships with others you'll find that those relationships are much more fulfilling.
