Separation of Act and Person

A Good Man – Chapter 35 – JohnA Passaro


What a slut time is.
She screws everybody.

John Green
The Fault in our Stars


I have learned to separate bad acts from good people.

I have learned to realize people are human.

They are going to mess up.

Sometimes they are going to mess up in a big way.

They are going to wrong someone or even you.

Sometimes they will wrong you many times.

They are going to let you down.

Sometimes, they will even try to hold you down.

As Mother Teresa said: “Believe in them and love them anyway.”

I believe when you truly know a person is a good person, it is important to never give up on them.

Ever.

Remember, “It’s not about the bike.”

It’s not about the mistake that was made.

It is about focusing on the good.

It is about focusing on the belief and the love.

It is about focusing on the people in our lives.

We all have a very limited time on this earth.

And every second counts.

That part, Lance Armstrong did not lie about.
