One Question

Litmus, Litmus on the Wall

If you had to come up with one question, the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?


At first this seems pretty straight forward, right?  I thought so too, which is why I decided to give it a shot.  But it’s actually a lot harder than I thought.  What would the question be? I’ve learned so much about friendship in the last few years; I’ve learned that you can’t will someone to be happy for you, to want to spend time with you. You can’t expect someone to do for you what you’d do for them. I’ve learned that you need to actually communicate with someone face to face to really know them.  I’ve learned that if you can’t be honest with yourself, you can’t expect others to be honest with you.

So, what would my one question be?

It would be this:  “Can you let go of your ego if you had to?”

And the right answer would be: “What ego?”
