    We fall... Because then we can get up again.

    Mistakes are a learning process we first learn the first time we fall over as infants. Life is about receiving, about learning, about getting up from our falls.

    Mistakes aren't bad. It's a mistake to think of mistakes as inherently bad, or devaluing to your character. :) Mistakes are only bad if you don't learn from them!

    It's hard to forgive oneself for the mistakes one has made. It does turn out, that it is easier to let go, live, and move on.
