I do my best to establish a reputation of being reliable, honest, fair and compassionate. I want to be thought of as a good friend, husband, co-worker, etc. Sometimes, despite my efforts, I fall short of that and I have no qualms about being told when I have, by the people I’ve slighted.
BUT, I believe I deserve the benefit of the doubt that any slight was unintentional. I am not a man given to malice or unconcern, and I try my best to treat other people as I wish to be treated. If I disappoint, it is not done with intention and I’d like to believe the people in my life know that.
Anyone I would harm or disappoint intentionally wouldn’t be someone I care enough about to avoid doing so, to.
If you’re my friend, you would not be one of these people, and I would hope any and every friend of mine would know that.
I’m just saying.
