As we grow up we hear lots and lots of "conventional wisdom" kind of tidbits about how to behave, how to be successful and so on. But so much of it is bullshit.
"You don't have to change who you are in relationship."
I'm paraphrasing - but how many movies have you seen with this kind of message? Books? TV Shows?And it's bullshit. Complete bullshit. You have to learn and you have to let other people change you into a better person. Whether it's a friend, a boss, or a romantic partner. You have to let them inspire you and you have to learn from them.
And it's the only kind of relationships worth having.
So, fellow Niners, what bit of conventional wisdom have you found to not be so wise?
