I believe how a person acts in a crisis shows who they really are. My grandmother showed me this when my grandfather died. My grandparents had been married for over fifty years when my grandfather suffered the stroke that killed him. Ever since that day I have know exactly what kind of person my grandmother is.
How you act in a crisis shows who you really are. It is easy to be nice and friendly in good and stress-free times. Putting on a smile does not take much. But, when faced with a struggle or crisis, the layer of personality that one shows on a normal day-to-day basis washes away and a person’s true colors show.
