    Forgiveness...

    Is the most wonderful gift of all. It often takes love, wisdom, understanding and strenght to forgive someone, (who may not understand), to embrace the future on a new path and to accept that it does not mean "please abuse, use or walk all over this person again."...

    Acknowledging My Own Faults In How Things Unravelled Between Us

    Today I stuck the final nail in the coffin of a short yet intense relationship. She and I had been at a bitter impasse for days, unable to move beyond our misunderstanding and pain, yet both of us also clinging desperately to hope.  Couldn't one of us pull some magic from a hat...

    Mistakes

    My philosiphy(can't spell)  on mistakes is that if you never make mistakes then you never really grow.Ultimately we learn more from attempting something and making a mistake then we do from attempting something and getting it right the first time.

    Weakness ...

    I suppose I am a very forgiving person.  I have never carried hatred for someone or borne a grudge.  Sure I have disliked people and I do particularly dislike a poor attitude - especially someone who is a constantly trying to drag you down to their negativity - and I...

    It's Okay!

    There's really no point in picking on others mistakes and it's really important to let them make mistakes, how do you expect others to learn anything without those sometimes silly and sometimes big mistakes! Even Allah/God let his prophets make mistakes to learn from them so who...

    Transcendance

    There is only 1 goal in the role of mistakes, and that is correction and transcendance. Punishing yourself or others wont help in anyway. After acknowledging our feelings for any mistakes we made, we let it go so that we can move on in our life.  Mistakes ...

    Natural

    Nobody would learn if they didn't make mistakes, but they're pretty useless if you don't learn from them.

    Everybody does mistakes.

    .. that's what makes us human. We are not machines programed to follow directives. We are living breathing beings with the capability to think for our selves. But in order to learn something, most times we have to experience it. The most serious mistakes can easily be avoided...

    Mistakes Are How We Learn

    It's harsh but true, but you cant get everything right all the time. Almost every time I have learned something about ME and who I am it has been the result of a mistake that I have made. Mistakes are far less significant than what you learn from them.

    Including Myself

    Me Too

    I know I've made plenty of mistakes, so when someone else makes one or they are about to, I may give them a friendly word of advice, but I try never to judge them. No one is perfect, and hopefully we learn from the mistakes we make.

    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!
