Hey guys! Welcome back. As human beings we make mistakes. There is no way to avoid it. No one is perfect and we all do things we later regret. Mistakes come in all different shapes and sizes. Some are easy to move on from, others are not.
The point is you make mistakes. There is no denying that. What matters is how you handle it. Now the tip “Don’t look back” is not a good tip to take. A better idea to turn to is “don’t stare back”. Part of learning is remembering that it happened. Understand what you did and know that you don’t want to do that again. Look back at your mistakes and allow yourself to remember where you went wrong. But don’t stay in the past and never allow yourself to move on and make new mistakes.
Often times when we make a mistake of any size I tend to push it to the back of my mind and try to forget it, as I’m sure many of you are guilty of. This isn’t a good idea (and yes I am aware that I need to follow my own advice). But avoiding your thoughts is avoiding the situation. And if you avoid the situation you will never learn from what you did. The power of learning is coming to terms with the issue. So don’t avoid your thoughts. Don’t torture yourself by not allowing yourself to think about it because the truth is they will always be there in the back of your mind.
Learn how to grow. This is up for interpretation. Whether you are learning to be a bigger person, learning how to apologize, or simply learning how to accept your misjudgments this tip is definitely useful. One of the things that comes with learning from your mistakes is growing as a person. It’s a benefit of making mistakes. Every situation handled the right way can turn into something beautiful. You may not see the positivity now, but one day you will look back and see the change and you will be grateful.
Another great thing about making mistakes is it teaches you how to move on. If you allow them, even the smallest mistakes can haunt you for years and years. And I think that’s the last thing any of us wants. So with making mistakes comes the power of moving on. That’s a power anyone can handle. Always remember it is okay to forgive yourself and move on. Focus your energy on moving forward. Don’t trap yourself in your mistakes. Be free and live your life.
