I've spent the last few months trying to make sense of how shady people are.

It is in our human nature to hurt each other. We're inherently broken, born into this fallen state. We spend our whole lives interacting with each other, trial and error, give and take. And sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn't. Most of the time we do the wrong thing. Most of the time we lie or cheat or say something we shouldn't. There is no rule book for human emotions, no way to rationalize and weigh our options every second of the day.

How are we suppose to survive when the world is this way?

Forgiveness.

We have to forgive. Because he hurt you today, but you're going to hurt her tomorrow. Sometimes people mean to be malicious and hateful, but most of the time they don't. We have to step back and realize we all share a common fault. Humanity is essentially inhumane, we all share this experience. Without the power to forgive we are doomed to fail.

Forgive. Forgive them just like everyone has forgiven you.
