Morrie lived a life full of love. He emphasized that you don't get distracted by material objects in life but instead focus on relationships. In life I think it's very common to see people try to find happiness through material objects and I have yet to see someone be truly happy through those material objects. When looking at the relationships Morrie had you see the power of love and how it can pull people through the hardest of times. Morrie was dying and could still find joy in life because of his family and friends. I want to learn from Morrie and build the relationships around me because in a time of need material objects can't comfort you but close friends and family always will. Another thing Morrie did was keep an open heart. It didn't matter who he was talking to or when the conversation was he was always sincere and honest to that person. I think that is what made him such a relatable and nice guy. He didn't hold any of his feelings back no matter what. It's those kinds of people that have people that care about them and that is the kind of person that also cares about others. I hope i can learn to be more vulnerable with my emotions because then maybe the things that seem so hard in my life won't be so hard because people will be there to help me through it.
