Let me introduce you to Tyler!
I was moved by Tyler’s high level of insight into who he is, how his mind works, and the reasons he has made certain choices in his life. Tyler has reached a level of honesty with himself that many of us never come close to approaching. I detected no pretense or ulterior motive while talking with him—what a treasure it was to have a conversation with someone so open and honest!
I will be digesting the thoughts and feelings our conversation sparked for many days to come; however, one of my main take-aways can be summed up by a quote by the late great basketball player and coach, John Wooden:
“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.”
Tyler, it was an honour and a joy hear your story. Thank you!
