how we give things and how they are taken are not always in agreement. a gesture in friendship can be taken as slight. i’ve recently slighted in the name of friendship. maybe for the sake of it. had no idea the damage my perspective could bring – my attempts to be anything but cruel. but as i’ve always said…good intentions don’t always breed good results.

i have been unkind at times in my life. guilt ridden – what little satisfaction i got from any purposeful slight was quickly replaced by remorse. heavier still is the realization that i can do harm without intent – with the antithesis of intent. and in such cases all i can hope for is that friendship allows for such miscalculations and forgiveness abounds.
