How can we have better relationships?

Sometimes, it is hard to get rid of old grudges. After more than a half century of the lack of talks between the United States and Cuba, it seems that Barack Obama and Cuba are on a path to normalizing relations through an exchange agreement where a prisoner was released to the US. Breaking bread like this is the first steps to normalizing relations with those that we have had pasts with. I have done that with many of my friends in life. Although it was hard and it is hard to do, it is possible. We should all take the time to build relationships with all those around us, even to those that we wronged in the past. It is appropriate to think about things like this during this season. Take the time to forgive, forget, renew, and mend this season with all those people.
