Extend grace Girl Warrrior. Especially if you want to receive it. Know that there may come a day when you’ll want nothing more than this merciful gift from another.
We all make mistakes, for we are only human after all. First and foremost, be forgiving when someone makes a mistake. Accept that things often go awry. Run amok. Go off the rails. Turn out all wrong with disappointing results.
Shit happens. Understand that unfortunate things occur, even with the best intentions and the most valiant efforts. Resist the urge to point fingers, assign blame or throw someone under the bus. This doesn’t accomplish anything. Nor does it move the conversation in the direction it needs to go.
Always give what you want to get.
