Friendship
  1. Not everyone can be your friend.

Punishment
  1. If you feel something will not be right, most likely you are correct. Instinct is powerful.
  2. Accept it. If your special someone (friend, family, partner, whoever) wants to punish you for something that you've done, don't negotiate. Especially if you know your doing is wrong.
  3. Know the limit though. Don't be "I deserve all of this blah blah" and you will bad about yourself? Stop it. Take it, Learn from it then move on. Remember, it's how you see something and another thing to educate yourself from it. Keep positive thoughts or at least realistic thoughts after it happened.
