Nope life is about making 'mistakes' until you die. You don't wake up one morning and say "wow, now I know everything"
Besides, if you call them mistakes, that is the depressing part.
Refer to them as experiences. Don't look at those whose life did not present them with your unique experiences. Only you get to live your life with all it gives and takes. And all the obstacles you try to deal with as best you can, even if it does not look like best.

I am having the same issues. Trying to change lifelong thought patterns is tough
