True colours


Spend decades being a good person: “Not sure about that person…”

Drink too much at the staff Christmas party and say some dumb things (could be racist or sexist or political or religious etc): “Now we see their true colours!”

As the saying goes: Reputations take a lifetime to build and an instant to lose.

On one hand: We all say dumb things at times

On the other: Character reveals itself under stress

Recognising, acknowledging and admitting a bad behaviour and can be the start of growth.

Let’s forgive those who learn and grow from their mistakes. But hold accountable those who persist in their denials.
