Doug Dickerson on Leadership

forgive

Every man should keep a fair-sized cemetery in which to bury the faults of his friends. – Henry Ward Beecher

What do you do with the faults of your friends? Do you hold on to them?  How about just letting go of them? The mark of a good leader and friend is found in your ability to let go of the faults of your friends and move on. Life is too short to hold grudges especially towards those closest to you. Learn the meaning and value of friendship that will bury faults and not friends. Learn to let go. Learn to forgive. By the measure you forgive others it will be measured back to you. Be generous with forgiveness.
