I couldn’t help, but reflect over certain decisions I made recently. I couldn’t decide how I felt. Should I feel happy? Or should I feel sad? Or upset? Thrilled? In all likelihood, it was a mixture of all these emotions.
I also wasn’t sure if I had made the right decision or not. Maybe I had reacted too fast. Maybe I should have been more patient. Was it a mistake? But it was already made…
Accept Your Mistakes Lovingly
Changing your perspective on your mistakes can change everything. Suddenly, it’ll be an enriching and positive experience.
Instead of looking at them as crutches, you can love your mistakes. Because there was a purpose behind you making them. They teach you a lot about yourself.
At the time, it may not feel that way, but when you accept your mistakes lovingly, you can impart the beautiful lesson hidden in them.
Don’t Rehash the Same Story
Most people will repeat the same story to themselves over and over. They’ll beat themselves up over the mistake.
The mistake already happened. The experience has been completed. You can stop being hard on yourself. When you stop rehashing the story, you can find bliss in the present moment.
You can focus on creating beautiful new experiences and moving forward step by step.
Love Yourself Wholeheartedly, Even Your Flaws
When you have gone through an experience you’re not sure about, instead of being hard on yourself, you should love yourself.
If a friend or stranger had gone through such an experience, what would you tell them? You would probably be kind and gentle to them. You must do the same towards yourself!
Your Mistakes Are Great Learning Experiences
Most of all, your mistakes are great learning experiences. They are a part of who you are and become.
