The plate is broken, that crack will always be there. Do you throw away the plate or do you try to fix it? The lesson to learn here is that "Sorry" is the process of fixing the plate. Did you use glue? Did you use gold?
"What do you mean what did I use? What does it matter? It's fixed isn't it?"
Very true... but how much was your "sorry" worth? Will the plate break again from the basic use or will it hold forever?
That's today's lesson.
In life when you take care of your stuff, are privileged enough to have "nice things", work hard or gain influence or authority there comes a point where you have to wonder if people are your friends because they like YOU or they like your stuff/what you can do for them.
- You're the kid on the playground with the "coolest" toy, do they want to play with YOU or just the toy?
- Is your co-worker being nice to you because they actually respect you or because they want "easy access" to the benefits of your position?
- Is this person trying to be your friend because they want your help making money (want you to make it for them) or getting them a job that they aren't qualified for?
