How robust is your friendship in face of adversity?
Many have friends, some since high school, college, serving in the military and they believe they are vibrant, robust relationships. When the redacted hits the fan, and the relationship is tested by some major trial, how will yours survive? Which of these are closest to where you’d be?
• I can forgive a friend (even if it took a while) no matter what they did, to me or to anyone else.
• I can forgive them of doing something terrible to me, but I can’t forgive them if they did something foul to someone else that wasn’t me.
• I can’t forgive them of something they did to me but if it were someone else, I could.
• If they did something to me I would not forgive them just as I would not forgive them of doing something to someone else.
The person to whom the terrible thing was done was not anyone you know, by name, face, or any other indication. Could your friendship continue or would you toss the friendship in the toilet and forever hold a grudge against them?
