I Make Mistakes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,458 People

    Yesterday, I accidentally caused an argument.

    The story's too long to post here, but I feel horrible about it, and I can't get it off my mind. Mainly because two very close friends are disappointed in me. I think one cam't even look at me right now. I really didn't mean for this to happen, and I swear I'll never do it again...

    For every mistake I've made,

    I had my fair share of contribution in creating that... I am at least partially/ fully responsible for all the mistakes I have made in life

    There is a time in life to take a stand.

    A time in life to back away. A time to tread lightly and time to go full speed ahead. So many different souls we encounter in the journey of life, each very unique in their individual personalities. One must learn the tender art of good communication, it is very important in our...

    It's my temper which helps me make my mistakes.

    The worst part is that I hurt the person who had nothing to do with me being angry. Cindy, I'm sorry

    So, if you wanna judge me, go right ahead. Pick up as much dirt as you want and bury me in it. But once you're dome, dig your own grave next to me and jump in it. What person hadn't lied? What person hasn't always been truthful? What person hasn't held a little or a lot back...

    It presents us with a test. Sometimes we fail, sometimes we pass. We never know when it'll fall in our laps. Sometimes you're going about life trying to move on, trying to live life. When suddenly you're thrust into one of these tests. You have a choice keep going even though...

    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?

    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.
