The Arrogance of Forgiveness

My naivety has often led to prickly situations that didn't end well. Sometimes the prickiness of the situation resulted in the loss of what I assumed to be a heartwarming friendship. But the thing about conviction is that it makes it impossible to withdraw an unpopular sentiment in order to preserve the illusion of friendship, … Continue reading The Arrogance of Forgiveness
