On accepting mistakes and learning from them
My godchild was home last night and I realized that she has started to shout out her own name for all things good or bad.
“Who spilled that water?”
“Who is a good girl?”
“Who threw the magnets under the fridge?”
She had not spilled the water but she had thrown the magnets.
When she was talking and naming herself for every mischief that she was or was not responsible for, I realized how children accept things so easily. She was comfortable in accepting her mistakes. At two, I cannot expect her to learn from her mistakes.
As an adult, do you accept your mistakes and learn the right lessons from them?
Do you try to dig deep to find whose fault was it? And if yes, why?
Is it really important to find the real culprit behind what went wrong or is it important to move on and set things right for future?
Can you start on a clean slate and do the right things if given another chance?
These are questions for us to think. For us, to see things in a different light and from a lens that will help us grow. Easier said than done but won’t you give it a try before saying it wouldn’t work?
