You and your allies won't always agree, but your allies will be there most of the time when it matters.
Allies are those that think carefully about who you are and where you're going. They support you with time, energy, thought, and care.
Those who are not your allies continually disregard your work, effort, ideas, and needs. It's important to realize that they don't have what you need or want, and have to be treated with caution.
Who do you ally yourself to? How do you support those individuals, groups, and organizations? Are you a reliable, trustworthy, honest, and responsible ally?
It's important to know and work well with your allies in order to do the good work possible.
