As a young boy my parents told me it is ok to make mistakes as long as you learn from them. They said everyone makes them it is a part of life just try not to repeat them and never three peat them. I believe in the power of learning from your mistakes.
We all make mistakes some major some minor but we all make them. Usually people always get second chances because it is common knowledge that we do make mistakes. This is why the ways of the law and government usually give second chances. The important thing we all must get from this is what my parents said. “Everyone makes mistakes it is a part of life just try not to repeat them and never three peat them”.
I personally agree with my parents and also think that if you learn form your mistakes you can eventually learn to control your life much better. What I mean is that if you learn from them you have a better chance of not doing it again and life will become much more regular or consistent. I feel this is important because life is much easier and less stressful when you are in control of it.
The world is a place full of mistakes even the rich and powerful people make them. So you don’t have to feel alone you make a mistake of your own. Just remember to learn from them and don’t repeat them. This is why I believe in the power of learning from your mistakes.
