  1. Lores, this is awesome. If we could internalize a quarter of these beliefs, life would be amazing.

    One that has a lot of meaning to me is….

    I Believe…
    That no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt
    you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

    I had a hurtful situation with a colleague who has become a real friend over the past year that we worked together. I said early in our friendship that I observed that whenever 2 people work on anything together for prolonged periods such as work, friendship, relatsionship, etc…. that pissing each other off at some point is an eventuality.

    A few months ago, I said something major-league hurtful. It was completely unintentional but it was huge. I apologized. I then asked her if she remembered me talking about my theory of the eventuality of pissing each other off. She said yes. So I told her that I thought that day had arrived for us.

    It took the sting off the situation completely and put it into perspective. It does not change the fact that I was wrong and she was hurt. But yet, it did put it into context of simply how life works. I can think of no exceptions where I have not hurt or been hurt at some point by someone I was in relationship with. It just happens.

    Great post.
