Growing up, if you had asked my little sister to rate my sharing skills on a scale from 1-10, she probably would’ve given me around a 4.73 (her math skills rate significantly higher).
Don’t worry - I’ve improved. In fact, I’ve noticed that sharing has become something my family does best. Which is why I wasn’t surprised to find this article from Shape in my inbox, sent to me by mother.
