The true definition of “SELF” lies in the realization of a mistake and thereafter pursuing the attempt to correct one.
The truth also stands in the fact that making mistakes in life doesn’t mean that one should keep paying for those mistakes for a lifetime. You can’t make the same mistake twice because for once it’s a mistake but the second time it’s either an error or a choice.
Never be proud of the mistakes you make but always be proud to learn from them and ultimately make yourself a better person. Stop grieving and wasting time on the mistakes made instead get over them, make them your past and move on. The only aspect that should matter is that those mistakes and their grievances should not ruin the person in you.
Let a mistake be the lesson of wisdom for the past can’t be changed but the future is in your hands. People may judge you by the mistake you make, they may forget your good deeds but never feel disheartened and trust yourself to fake those judgements and keep executing the best of yourself.
The courage to admit a mistake and not walk away owing to the consequences is the most noteworthy act.
