Victoria Easterday everyone makes mistakes. I have made more than most, I think. And I don’t know how it used to be (you know how they say it’s a mistake the first time, and after that, it’s a choice), maybe in the past you repeated your mistakes by choice and people got hurt. I have no idea. But what I do know is about now, and your willingness to own and acknowledge any mistakes you are aware of having made, and to make amends for them, is all any reasonable person would ever expect from another imperfect human being.

So, I sincerely hope that as you embark upon this street-cleaning mission of yours, as you ask others for forgiveness, you do not forget to forgive yourself.

Because I have a feeling you might be hanging on to some guilt. And you shouldn’t be doing that.


I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
