My family always demonstrated good communication amongst one another. Whenever we have a disagreement about something, we talk about it with another.

If I agree with it,then I will support who ever came up with the idea. The bystander would be last because I normally insert my opinion or advice in a situation when I am asked, even though it may not directly deal with me.

Without these goals to reach, I would have…
