If I come back and read this post in a day or two and it sounds like a rant, I will probably delete it.
Let me preface my comments by letting you all know that this reference is not about any of you who read my blog. Nor am I the offended or the offender.
Life is too short to be offended.
Someone I care about unintentionally offended a friend. It has really affected their friendship. She is sad. The person who was offended was someone I have been very impressed with from the moment I met her. She is polite, fun, and caring. Yet now she shows a different side that makes me sad too. She seems to have lost some of the very qualities that seemed to make her such a great individual. I hope she soon remembers who she wants to be.
So here are my words of wisdom for the day.
Talk it out, even if it is difficult. The friendship/relationship is worth it.
Say you are sorry like it is your fault, even if it isn't.
And . . . for the third time . . . Life is too short to be offended.
