I Understand Everyone Makes Mistakes

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 448 People

    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.

    Nobody's Perfect

    Of course everybody makes mistakes - I've made more than I can count. My main one is how I lost my virginity - ie to a rotten one night stand and with somone I didn't even like

    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.

    None of us are perfect, even though i don't make a mistake often anymore that is only because of how many i have made and how many i have learned from. Still some of them have been pretty bad...

    Natural

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

    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 ...

    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."...

    Including Myself

    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...

    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

    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.
