You can be a good person and still exercise poor judgment. In these moments we’re not the friend others deserve, the partner others choose, the child our parents raised, the exemplar we wish to be, nor the person we’re capable of being. It can happen to the best of us. We’re human. We all make mistakes. Just because we’ve lost our way doesn’t mean that we are lost forever. In the end, it’s not the failures that define us so much as how we respond.”-Shane Parrish, Mistakes
