In the past, I used to bother so much with my mistakes. I can think about it until the next day or even weeks. It made me feel so heavy and burdened as I was trying to figure out how to undo the problem. I worried about being judged and having a bad relationship with anyone.
However, after reaching my twenties I started to realize the mistake is actually a good thing and it’s not something that one should take priority in life and constantly get tied by it. Because the more mistakes that I made, the more I let myself to think over where I had gone wrong and try my best to find solutions.
LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
If you keep thinking mistake as a negative thing, then what makes you here today? I’m sure you heard this saying “learn from your mistakes” a lot. You know what? I do live for that. I know we all have the fear of making mistakes and it’s not easy to just brush it off. I admit I’m scared of it too because sometimes the outcomes are bigger and it can affect others.
You see, most of the time people care more about the bad rather than the good sides we have. However, if you’ve done it, there’s nothing can be done except do better on the next one. From there, it will help you gain more understanding of what is happening. I know no one wants to purposely do it if they know they will end up making mistakes.
DONT WORRY, IT’S OKAY
Let’s just say you just got fired from your favorite job that you’ve always longed for. How painful it was and here you are thinking all the wrong things that you did. But if you never get fired, you won’t had the chance to soar out and try something new, isn’t it?
They often said don’t make mistake or choose a wrong path in your life. But is it easier to aim to be perfect? No, that’s impossible. Even if you made a wrong decision, there’s always a new path is waiting. Don’t worry, life is full of choices if one didn’t work out, why not try another option.
YOU SHOULD BE THE ONE
Remember, a person who cares so much about your mistakes is not the one who will determine your life. They can judge, mock or label you with all sorts of name, but don’t put yourself down to their expectations. A human can never be perfect. That’s why mistakes are made to find solutions.
Everything has a reason behind it. Good or bad, time will keep moving without waiting. That’s how wonderful life is, we learn and keep learning from our mistakes to shape our future together. Just Don’t give up.
ALWAYS ABOUT YOU
Now I never take it as something that going to hold me back from doing things I want to strive for. Opportunities are everywhere, it might not be easy but once you get what you wanted, you will be glad about your mistakes as it will lead you to more exciting phase in your life. You might even learn something about yourself that you never know about.
