When someone struggles with a task and commits a mistake, we tend to correct him or her without respect, gentleness, and tact. In pointing out others’ flaws, we sometimes use insensitive words that hurt them. Just because we are right does not mean we can be rude. This story shows how true friends don’t just correct but instead encourage and offer help.
