It is very important for a person to have principles and abide by it in the toughest of times. That said, it is also worth noting that in the effort to stand by one’s beliefs, situations should be accessed in its entirety without preconceived judgement and to apply fairness when dealing with them. Do not be quick to judge or dismiss something as such and such simply because it is a matter that has come your way too many times. That “experience” in itself could be detrimental to the overall process where fairness should be a constant underlying principle in proceeding with any matter. So be firm and practise fairness at the same time.
