Reputation is a big deal to everyone. As much as we do not want to be judged based on our reputation, we are. There are many times we get boosts in our reputations and there will be a few instances that will bring it down a level. However, even when it goes down, it can always go back up, no matter what.
An arrest can be a huge reputation killer. Possibly one of the worst, but there are so many people out there who do not let it define them. It is certainly a weight to carry for a period of time, but they move past it and show others they are better than that brief moment. Eventually, those people too will look past the incident. The reputation is repaired and the once arrested person is very happy once again, getting job offers, referrals, and recommendations. He or she is doing everything that he or she is supposed to be doing, as if the arrest never happened. You see, that person got his or her life back on track and it’s panning out just the way it should be.
