Something similar happened to me in 2015. You don’t really know someone until you hurt them. You shouldn’t set out to do so, but, once you accidentally do — and we all do if the relationship lasts long enough — you see their true colors. Their reaction often says more about their character and your relationship than you screwing up. Funny how that works. You make a mistake, and, because the other person takes it poorly, you realize you don’t want their approval after all, maybe not even have them in your life. Definitely one of life’s weirder quirks. Great article. More of these, please :)
