Enick, good points..Shall I say something here?

According to me, we need not have to adjust or design ourselves to someone to become a 'something' or 'someone' of their choice or taste.

Rather, we can stick on to be of our own.

If we be good to ourselves then ultimately the result will be - we are good to the one in front of us.

A person with kind heart with lots of love filled in it plus some commonsense can be good to everyone, may it be his family, friends or his girl friend..
