We all err at times no matter our age, gender, culture, race, geography, or interests.
Most well meaning people don't like to make mistakes, especially mistakes that hurt others. Often those kinds of mistakes are mired in complex histories, experiences, relationships, and events.
Rather than "forget that" as many would suggest, it's good to unravel the error in order to see the details, understand the problem, and move forward with positivity.
Doing the right thing is at times easy and accessible and at other times vague and problematic. We do well though if we all move in that direction as well as we are able. Onward.
