it happens

It's so hard being human. We are prone to having emotions which make us do crazy things. Sometimes, we speak out of line or behave irrationally, regretfully hurting other people. It happens. Being human, we possess one trait no other living creature on this planet does, we can take accountability for our actions.

We can own up to our mistakes without casting blame.


This doesn't mean forgiveness will be granted, but, this one selfless act can go a long way in healing those that have been hurt. On occasion, we may be able to rebuild what we tore down—the journey may be long, but it may be possible.


Be hopeful, but do not be blind to hard truths, sometimes, damage cannot be reversed. Although, there is value in accountability—it's called closure.
