This #MondayMotivation quote is one that I can relate to. A LOT. I’m sure some of you can as well.
I’ve definitely made my share of mistakes from my career all the way to my love life. At times, my life really was a red hot mess just based off of dumb decisions I made (often based on my emotions). As I tried to move on from them, I found myself putting myself down for the things I did or didn’t do. But what could I really do about those mistakes at that point? They were already done. All I can do is try to learn from them and avoid making the same slip-ups in the future.
When we only focus on our mistakes, we tend to keep re-living the past instead of looking towards how to make the future better. Mistakes can surely cause insecurities, feelings of inadequacy, bitterness and resentment, all of which end up holding us back. While it’s hard, I challenge you all (as I challenge myself!) to forgive yourself for your missteps, and find a lesson within them.
