When I read this post and saw the responses, my heart sank… Not because of Maren’s actions. But because of the responses. So I wrote this:
Why don’t we have more compassion when people make mistakes?
Maren didn’t act out of malice or greed… She made a mistake. And she wasn’t fully transparent with it.
Haven’t any of you screwed up? Not lived up to your values? Not been fully transparent?
Yes she screwed up. Big time.
But don’t you think she knows that?
It’s so easy to judge and criticize.
Why don’t we focus on what we can learn from this situation instead of adding salt on an already aching wound?
