I Make Mistakes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,230 People

    I've made so many mistakes in this life.

    I very good at helping others make decisions and I'm told I give excellent advice. I just can't seem to do so for myself. So I will continue to barrel down this path thru my life hoping that at some point my perseverance out distances my errors. Sometimes I don't even remember...

    We All Do

    Mistakes are bound to happen no matter how hard we try to avoid them. The best we can do it learn from our mistakes, and try not to repeat them. It's simple as that.

    I think everybody does,

    but if it wasn't for making mistakes and falling down. How could anybody learn so they keep their balance in the future? Trial and error.

    And It Could Be Just Taken As a Lesson

    but it involved other person that i thought was love of my life it is hard to be aware of how other people could feel about your mistakes.... because it might be easier to forgive than to be forgiven... or are those same things?

    I'm Sorry My Mistakes Have Hurt Others.

    I am dealing the fact that I have done things in my life that were unwise to say the least and sometimes downright hurtful to others. I have a mental illness and sometimes my perceptions are way off. I blamed my mental illness for my behaviors. I blamed my childhood for my...

    Lessons Learned

    As human beings, we are fallible creatures. My belief is that the mistakes we make along the way, will only help us to grow and mature. The important part, of course, is that we learn from those lessons that life has dealt us. None of us are perfect, far from it. I make mistakes...

    Liking a committed man is one of the worst

    scenarios in love. Another lucky girl has his heart and there's no way he can make that sacrifice for you. You either go after him and later get pushed away for trying so hard at something he doesn't want or you stand passively enjoying the little crumbs of his love he sends...

    You just have to accept it. I know, easier said than done. I know it's hard to accept that sometimes, mistakes have to be made. No-one's perfect. But sometimes, you just feel like you have to be, even though that's impossible.

    Obviously- but lately I've been making a lot of

    them. Most involving love. Everything gets so complicated... it's no longer black and white- but shades of gray. No one even knows about them- and I can hardly admit it to myself.
