Today I saw someone do something so utterly stupid, ignorant, and devoid of explanation – that hours later, I am still puzzled.

I’ve known this someone for years. I’ve seen this person mature into adulthood against all odds. I’ve encouraged them through multiple personal challenges, despite the costs of those mistakes.

When do you know when you must stop helping someone, regardless of the consequences?

I can’t figure out if the offense was committed out of laziness, naiveté, or malicious intent. And I don’t think I will ever really know the truth.

Perhaps it is time to part ways.
