In the movie the Godfather part 1, Veto Corleone was shot. To a casual observer it will appear it was because his son Fredo who was to protect him on the said day fell asleep. It was however deeper than that. There is a lesson to be learnt about relationships.
Veto Corleone was shot shortly after a meeting where he turned down the offer to bank roll and offer cover for the drug business in Newyork. However in that meeting his son who was heir apparent publicly disagreed with his father which sent a signal to the opposition.
They knew if they took the Godfather out they would probably get a deal. Veto Corleone called his son after the meeting to caution him about publicly disclosing thoughts that show a crack. He was troubled after the meeting and sent his hit man to find out more details.
However it was too late. Costly to relate with people who gossip behind your back they expose you. Relationships are deep and spiritual. They are not casual things. Whoever you walk with publicly, you have given some of your honour to that person and given him some power over you
Retweets may not be endorsements bit relationships are. There are many unintended consequences that come as a result of who you choose to relate with. Where you feel you are being exposed, kindly tactfully withdraw before something hurtful happens.
