Sometimes, in life, I think people would be so much happier if they learned to forgive others for the mistakes of the past. No one is perfect and we all do things we aren't proud of more often than we'd like to admit. At some point, we're all broken people and we all do stupid things. In fact, at times, doing things that aren't the best long-term decision can be necessary. Or, there can be the inevitability of picking between two bad choices. The point is, when someone makes a mistake that hurts someone, you can either stay mad at the person forever - or, hopefully sooner rather than later - realize human beings are flawed creatures and forgive them. Sometimes the bravest thing people can do is to reach out. Don't return such gestures with a cold shoulder.
