Mistakes are not immoral

Making a mistake is not the same as committing a moral crime.

Just because a person didn’t get it right doesn’t mean they’re out to get you. Error is not equal to evil. Integrity is not identical to innocence.

The mere fact that someone fails, even if that failure is large, costly, and embarrassing, isn’t proof that they don’t care about ethical standards.

People can learn from their experiences. People can get better with time and practice. People can evolve and mature. People can make the shift, if given the proper support, from incompetence to mastery.

People aren’t perfect, but they’re still worth believing in.

And by “people”, I mean human beings like you and I.
