Mistakes: an error in action, calculation, opinion, or judgment caused by poor reasoning, carelessness, insufficient knowledge. Most of us try to avoid making them, but only the brave don’t fear them.
In general, people believe that those who do not make many mistakes are “wise” or “careful” but I think otherwise. It’s true that those who make mistakes weren’t aware of the situation they were in. But if you really think about it, you’ll realize that because they weren’t aware, they put themselves in tough situations and because of that, they got the chance to really go through something and find a way to get to a safe place.
Now this is what makes you wise, I mean sure, maybe not putting yourself through that in the first place makes you wise. But the knowledge and experince that you get from making that mistake and fixing it makes you wiser. Because even if you ever made that same mistake again or another mistake like it, you’ll know how to fix it in a fast manner rather than taking the same time you took with fixing the mistake the first time.
I believe that it’s okay to make mistakes, because really if you’re not making any mistake and your life is “perfect” then you’re not really challenging and improving yourself. Making mistakes is a part of being human, we make mistakes and we learn a lot about ourselves and the people in our lives because of the mistakes we make.
People shouldn’t be judged by the mistakes they’ve made, but for how they fixed them and how they managed to be stronger after them.
