Today, I was reminded of a story I know well.

He mentored him.
He put him up as one of his groomsmen.
He paid for the hotel he was to stay just to make the trip easy.
He kept a tab on him to make sure he was doing well at work.
But betrayal only comes from those close enough to hurt you.
The mentee developed a desire for the mentor’s wife and had her.
The mentee then propagated a story that he was the victim and needed to be protected.
The mentor bore all this in his heart and kept going.

I am thankful for those that do not choose revenge. It is because of them that humankind still exists.
