This one time, a friend of mine was using a charger belonging to someone else and she accidentally spoiled it. So she immediately bought another one.
But then the owner of the charger wouldn’t accept the new one. Her reasoning was “In my church, we’re not supposed to collect replacements. We forgive and move on.”
And my friend is like “Well we believe that you should do whatever you can to right your wrongs. So I have to give you the charger.”
Honestly speaking, I found the whole thing stupid and unnecessary. I mean it was just a charger. If I’d spoilt it and the person wanted a new one, then fine. If someone spoilt my charger, I wouldn’t demand a new one but I wouldn’t reject one either. But that’s besides the point.
What I want to know is, what do you do when your choices or beliefs directly contradict someone else’s?
Like, neither of you are wrong from a legal or moral standpoint; you just happen to have contrasting stances.
Do you respect their choice or stand firm to yours if no compromise can be reached?
Let me know in the comments.
