Friend or Foe
Sometimes what you don't know can't hurt you and you're better off not knowing. Your interactions with people may be varied based on the level of comfort of both parties. Sometimes it may be superficial, other times you may have a genuine connection. Still other times the lines may be blurred and one or more party may not be able to tell the difference. Years may go by and you may be none the wiser until an event happens to bring enlightenment. When this happens, what does the wronged party do to bring closure? Perhaps closure is not necessary but rather forgiveness. Only the truly mature can learn to let go and let bygones be bygones. For most of us, it's easier just to sever ties and move on. In the end, when you discover the truth, you have God to thank that He revealed this person for who they are and you are able to separate friend from foe before it is too late. Sometimes all it takes is a simple "I forgive you" for both parties to find peace. In time we would come to realize that sincerity is better than ignorance and find the closure we need.
