Why making mistakes is a good thing

Your mistakes aren’t meant to keep you suffering in regret or shame. They mean to teach you how to be better.

Mistakes teach you how to follow through with what you say. They remind you to walk the talk.

For example, do you really mean what you say when you’re on a path of peace, love, or happiness? 

Mistakes teach you to forgive yourself and everyone else because being human means we’re destined to mess up again.

When you mess up, you’re sometimes left with this feeling of not ever wanting to trying again, of wanting to bury yourself in the ground. 

Sometimes it takes a while to get it right because you don’t know any better. Other times it takes a while to get right because you’re stubborn, and you don’t want to do things differently.

Yet, the signs will always be there to point you back to the most peaceful, free, loving, and joyful path.

It’s important, then, to forgive yourself and to forgive others again and again until we get it right. To be there for each other after we fall. 

To hold each other accountable for our words and actions because sometimes the most loving thing you can do is to help someone open their eyes to a truth.

When you make a mistake, it’s your sign to try again until you get it right.

  1. I totally agree, mistakes are humbling in a good way. I also teach my kids to have compassion when they see someone make a mistake similar to one of theirs. I think mistakes can build awareness and even a sense of community.
