A life spent in making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
George Bernard Shaw
Learning about another person’s bad traits is educational, but even so there is always two sides to the story. He can be a flirt but at the same time an able people manager. An A-hole but a dedicated team player. There is still much to learn about human nature and how we come to accept people, warts and all.
Hovering on the surface and trying not to delve deeper into the mind of the person I want to get to know the most at this moment is frustrating. There are boundaries I must observe because I am the older one, which kinda sucks. I know how thin the line is between wrong and right, how murky grey it could be when people’s lives are involved. I am already starting to regret it but am sticking to my decision for now.
To be professional without being emotional in my dealings. It should not be a big deal since there is a huge body of water separating us. I just need to remember my stand every time I reach for the phone.
