Do you ever wonder if anyone you know has a criminal record? Maybe a coworker, or the cashier at the grocery store you always chat with, or even a close friend who you met through a mutual friend. Do you ever wonder what their past was like?
It is very possible you know someone who had been arrrested before. They can be a very good friend of yours now, but you might not know this about them. They keep it a secret, and you never would guess they have dealt with being arrested. They are so successful, and seem to have their life together, you would never guess such a thing has happened.
Well, that is what the best of them do, they do not let their arrest bring them down in life. An arrest, at the time, must be dealt with maturely and seriously. Once the ordeal is over, it is best that the person move on and go about as if it never happened. They have no obligation to mention it to anyone new who comes into their lives, unless it is for official reasons such as applying for a job or a loan. Other than that, they do not have to tell anyone about their former mishap. It was one mistake, they have moved one, and they fully intend to get their life back on track. That could be exactly what your coworker did.
If you are ever arrested yourself, remember to not let that arrest define you. Rather, you take control of the situation and become better from the experience.
