It's really hard to agree or go against a saying like this because there are so many pro's and con's that go with this statement. Everyone would be less vulnerable if they followed these words.
Friendship is something I value very, very much and once that is tampered with it is very tough to gain that relationship back. I always wanted a big brother, someone to look up to, someone to fight with, someone to bully me around and follow in their footsteps. Unfortunately I was given the responsibility of being the oldest child and setting the example. I've failed miserably at always setting a good example but I've tried to make as many as I can so that those who follow know not to derive from the task at hand...and that's to live life to the fullest on the "right" path.
People always tell me it's ok to make mistakes and I feel like slapping them across the face because it's a bold face lie, but at the same time I feel like a hypocrite because I myself say that. I feel it's ok to make mistakes because you'll always learn from them, the key is to not make the same mistake twice. Life is hard and being a grown up in life is even tougher. Keep your chin up.
