Who has never committed a mistake in life? I have done so many that I have lost count of them, but you know what? I could never be the person I’m today if would never fail. Failing is how we grow and develop as a person as long as we are able to learn from them.
Yesterday I had a situation where someone copied a post that I wrote and I got angry at first and reported it to WordPress. Afterwards I wrote a post on my blog about it. I got a message from this person who was very sorry for what she had done and apologised for it. I just had to forgive her and I saw how regretful she was. She is only 18 years old and is at my daughters age. After hearing her side of the story i believe that she did not mean to copy but it turned out in that way. However, I believe that she knows how to give people credit in the future for their work and that it takes more than change a couple of words.
Anyway, I have forgiven her and we are friends now. She is a very sweet person and I wish her all the best on her blog. Everyone makes mistakes and forgiveness is crucial to move on in life. I have forgiven her and I will not delve more with what happened.
I just felt that it was necessary to write a post about it and tell my readers that we should all let it go.
