Hey everyone, its Shirley from your Patient Next Door Support Team.
Failures and mistakes, have you ever experienced them? Of course, you have. All humans make mistakes and experience failures. Sometimes these events can be life-changing.
How have you allowed these challenges to affect you? Have you gotten angry and resentful at life? Or have you done something far more noble and constructive like learning from what has happened?
Yep, you and I are going to mess up and sometimes our mistakes will affect not just us but those we care for the most. If we do mess up, we have two choices.
One, we can blame others for our mistakes and feel self-righteous and sorry for ourselves thinking life isn’t fair.
Two, we can get back up, brush ourselves off, make amends where possible and then ask ourselves a series of questions like the following:
What can I learn from that mistake that will help me make a better choice next time?
How can I incorporate what I learned into my everyday life?
And, finally, where do I want to go from here?
Letting go of self-righteousness, indignation, and looking at ourselves honestly while learning from our mistakes makes us strong resilient and a wonderful example to our children.
