Revealing character

img_4228

I’ve often heard that adversity builds character.  And I have always disagreed with that idea.  Instead of building character, I think that adversity reveals character instead.

Over the past few weeks of this crisis I have been watching how friends respond.  There are those who are called to action and in a moment of crisis it brings out their good.

However, I’ve also seen some of the worst come out of people too.  People who do a pretty good job of covering up their nastiness during times of calm are having their mask removed.

This crisis reminds me of how important it is to keep good people in your circle.  It reminds me to pay attention to people during times of calm, pay attention to those around you and learn about their true character.  You don’t want to wait for a time of adversity of their true character to be revealed.
