I had a heated argument with someone I really care a lot about last night. Then a realization came to me like a swift slap in the face. A relationship, whether friends or lovers, will never work out if one of you is always looking to “get even”. If you can”t let bygones be bygones, especially when you agreed to do just that, then there is no reason to continue that relationship. Pursuing retribution just shows a complete lack of respect and an inability to forgive.
