We seem to have collectively forgotten that it’s possible to both love and care about a person while simultaneously being deeply disappointed in their words and actions.

Stop believing everyone is either a Jedi or Sith. People are complex, our thoughts are complex, our environments are complex, and our actions are complex. The world is not a binary place, and we are -all- deeply flawed. Accepting nuance doesn’t mean sacrificing your convictions, but it does mean understanding their intricacy.

Work every day to be a better person. Help others to be the best they can. Inspire them. Love people even when you believe in your core that they are wrong. Be eternally gracious towards others, while continually expecting the best of yourself. And most of all, be grateful for the people that love you even when you disappoint them.
