The mistakes of life

Making mistakes

I have made great mistakes. But, throughout life, knowing these mistakes of the past, I have come to see that all of them are there for a reason. No one is perfect. Yes, these can be giant mistakes, terrible mistakes, very bad mistakes; however, they are also teachers, but to learn from them is up to us.

If we don’t learn, we keep repeating them. So, it is always wise to pay attention and not get so into grief and shame. Anxiety is not a good friend, it doesn’t let the mind truly learn from mistakes. And to create success, whatever success means to each one of us, we must be able to pay attention and learn.

Being humble

Of all those mistakes, we may feel the self-pity, the frustration, the anger with ourselves. This is something natural, healthy, and it means we have the capacity to recognize we are flawed–which makes us more human, more empathetic. But, truth is, mistakes are an important part of life; because, like I mentioned, they’re teachers.

But teachers can only teach if the student is receptive. Being receptive is being open to new ideas, suggestions, philosophies to improve ourselves and move on. Being receptive then requires our humility, to accept that we have to change and that we are flawed; and humility to accept as well that we can indeed change and get better.

Close to your heart

Trusting others

It might not be our cup of tea. It might not be the way we see things. It might not be what we are use to. But we all need help once in a while. Whatever it is, there is no shame in seeking help. Oftentimes, we think we can do it alone because our desire is there and we feel strong, but sometimes desire is not enough and courage to trust others is required from us.

Courage to change our habits. Courage to leave our pride and old ways. Courage to choose to be better than we were yesterday. It’s easy to remain set in your old habits, traditions, and ways of doing things; but to be better and progress requires great change. Great change in our lives perhaps needs guidance from someone else.

Being humble

Courage to let others help us, guide us, point the way, is about humility. Humility is the opposite of pride. Pride is eating us alive, and it might be taking us on a wrong path. Life is difficult, things are challenging, events unfold unexpectedly. We all go through that. But that is why it is so important to find your people, your tribe, your family; and then let them give you a hand, let them connect with you.

This bond might be just what changes your life for the better, or not so much; but truth is you’ll never know if pride is allowed to fester in your mind. Freedom is about liberating yourself from all that anxiety and burdens you may carry. Sometimes others carry their own burdens, and so they can give you guidance in your own life. Because sometimes is about letting others close to your heart instead of judging so much with your mind.
