This tragedy has shown me just how important it is to have REAL friends.
And equal partnerships.

Think about it. Every time JRE got himself in trouble, it was in the context of vastly UNequal partnerships. Obsequiousness and excessive admiration on the part of those so-called "friends" proved lethal to him. He proves it: sycophancy is just as bad for the person it's aimed at, as it is for the one practicing it.

Elizabeth is an equal partner dream come true. And any time he stuck with her and her sage advice, her equality and her true friendship, he succeeded.

She is truly an example for all of us to follow. And a reminder to all women who feel pressure to act unequal, to be less than our best and live less than our fullest in the name of relationship attraction: nothing is more precious than your whole, strong self, and an eagle eye for real friendship ability in others.
