There are no mistakes in life, only lessons. There is no such thing as a negative experience, only opportunities to grow, learn and advance along the road of self-mastery. From struggle comes strength. Even pain can be a wonderful teacher.
– Robin Sharma
We have crossed a long road to come to this stage of life where we are standing now. Many lessons, sacrifices, heartbreaks, and other things have made us what we have become today.
Now from this point in your life, if you look back, you may see a lot of mistakes. You may see mistakes so stupid that you will never repeat it again if given the same situation. You will laugh at those mistakes.
There are a lot of mistakes we have committed in our lives until now. Some of these mistakes may still comeback even to these days to haunt us. However, you should always be pretty sure of one thing and that you have not committed even one mistake in your life.
Shocked reading the last line of the previous paragraph? Well, no matter how contradictory it may sound, you have not committed a single mistake in your whole life, and you will never commit one in the upcoming days.
All the mistakes you have ever committed in your childhood or even after that, are some lessons that you have learned through experience. It was just a part of the self-learning process of your life.
No matter how fatal or disastrous those mistakes are, you should not be afraid of them. You should be learning from those mistakes so that you never repeat those mistakes ever again.
Therefore, look at your mistakes like a part of your self-learning process because those mistakes have given you the lessons not to repeat them anymore.
