    I made mistakes but I hate people

    who follow me and keep reminding me about it. I know I did it but I don't like the fact that they are reminding me every single second of my life. I wish sometimes I could start my life over but I learned from them and I can't live without making any mistakes and making me...

    Haven't we all? Mistakes are dance steps we are meant to learn.Β  There would be the long, gliding steps of making a decision... pausing when in doubt... uncertain to go on... The Tango. The times when we are on a high... with fluid and graceful movements... then trip and fall...

    I cannot bear to restate them.

    I choose not to repeat them. One of Life's most beautiful qualities is the room that is left for second chances. My friends tell me that I'm a good person. They say other nice things about me. That's what friends do, of course. I tend to reply, "It's to make up for the times...
