In principle, we all make mistakes. It is part of being human. Mistakes are often painful in the short term but useful in the long term. Mistakes teach us how to do things better, how to make better decisions.
It’s often unfair to judge a person just because they made a mistake. The better basis for judgment is how one handles one’s mistake.
We are most useful to our groups when we acknowledge our mistakes, try to make things right, and maintain self worth.
Practical Tip: Turn mistakes into opportunities to demonstrate your good character. Admit your mistake, apologize, try to fix it, take stock of lessons learned, and move on.
Do not let mistakes bring you down but rather make you strong. Do not judge against someone who makes an honest mistake and handles it with integrity.
Graduate from small mistakes to higher stakes.
