Learning from my mistakes has been a big key in my life. I am someone who doesn’t always choose the right things because I can be persuaded easily at times. This comes especially when I don’t know what I’m doing. I’m sure there are many others out there like this and don’t worry! Just because you make some mistakes, it doesn’t mean the world is ending. The most crucial time this has happened for myself was during high school. I was very afraid of failing at the time, which caused me to do anything to keep away from that. And then my mistakes lead to stress, and stress caused a lot of bad things in my life as well. But looking back now, I see that it’s completely fine to make mistakes because you learn and learn and learn from them. In the moment you may not see it, but later on you will. Learning from them has caused me not to be so persuaded by the people around me and I learn how to figure things out on my own eventually.
I’m thankful for my mistakes because I feel that it’s a great learning experience for anyone. I know that sounds dumb, but as I get older I find it to be more and more true each time. I hope that everyone else can get a feel for this. Just remember that no matter what happens in your life, they happen for some odd reason.
