Exactly. It's posited as something simple to achieve, but since we're complex multitude-containing creatures we make mistakes and misjudgements all around.

I think it's up to each and everyone of us to be careful with our intentions and the resulting actions. Nobody is perfect, but if there's no room for errors, making amends and forgivement then there's no room for humanity.

I agree. The only thing I add is that intentions, and making your intentions known, can mean a lot. I think it's a lot easier to forgive mistakes people made out of good will.
