Today’s Thought from my Readwise collection is from Amanda Knox’s Atlantic essay about how people continue to exploit for profit her identity and the lies told about her.
As someone who has been falsely accused, reading this impacted me in a significant way.
So now I also try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. We don’t know the whole story about any other person.
I know how it feels for a group of people to be wrong about me. That is a pain I don’t wish on others. So I work to refrain from the judgment of others. I don’t want to make that same mistake.
