On Making Mistakes

We all make mistakes, but as much as possible, we avoid it. We fear making mistakes because we are afraid of being judged.

Yet by doing so, we are unable to release our full potential.

We cannot know our limits if we do not take risks and make mistakes.

By being afraid, we are doing one thing that devoids us of experiencing life to its fullest: living.

There are so many nuggets of wisdom and experiences to be picked up on the ground when we fall. Collect them and learn from them.

Don’t beat yourself up over it. Absolute perfection does not exist.

You may feel as if you want to escape, but don’t. It may hurt and sting, but stay. Restrain yourself from escaping. People might laugh and scorn you, but don’t let them get to you.

This is the best time for you to learn and grow. It’s hard, and while it may be easy to say or write these, applying it is difficult. I should know, I’m still trying.

Nobody has it easy, and most likely, nobody will ever have it easy.

It’s best to be afraid not of making mistakes, but on not doing and being your best.
