Valuable Friendships

Socrates had a famous belief that, no one does wrong on purpose. After all, we are each only ever doing the best that we can, given the information we know. And so, we should be generously willing to forgive.

Just imagine if you were never forgiven for all of your mistakes, how hard it would be to navigate through life. It’s not only a waste of time creating enemies, it’s self-destructive. Author Robin Sharma advises to remember the Chinese proverb: “before you go off to seek revenge, it is best to dig two graves.”

It’s best to forgive and keep moving forward in all of your relationships. Nobody is perfect, not even yourself, and a friend is so much more valuable than any misguided pride, holding a grudge against some kind of a sworn enemy.
