Break me. Correct me. Teach me

The most important life lesson we will ever learn, will be from the bad decisions we make. However, those bad decisions present us with the perfect opportunity to improve ourselves.

It is understandable to dwell on our mistakes; to regret them. But do not dwell on them all the time, or for too long. This might be harmful to your emotional health.

You must realise you’re so much more than the worst mistakes you have ever made. The rule is, don’t make the same one TWICE. Doing so might put you on the road to self-destruct.

Some of the most painful things we have experienced, usually teach us the most. Think back to some of the mistakes you made, and consider how they have strengthened your character; how they have shaped your knowledge.

Though we may look back at these mistakes, and thought to ourselves:

How could I have been so naive and stubborn enough to do something that ended up hurting me?

It is good for us to admit our mistakes, and take full responsibility for them. This will gain you respect from your loved ones.

Mistakes can be valuable, but in order for them to be of value, you must be willing to see them as a beneficial/critical part of your life. But once they have been made, you must strengthen your resolve not to repeat them.

People usually make mistakes a lo when it comes to their RELATIONSHIPS, be it marriage, dating or friendship. While others has to do with business decisions or the choices they make for themselves.

Although some mistakes have greater CONSEQUENCES than others, but nonetheless, don’t let those mistakes define you.

Your biggest mistake could end up turning into your greatest victory. You never can tell. But it is very important to grow from the experience.

You don’t have to be a prisoner of your mistakes. Turn every mistake into an opportunity to GROW.

      1. As I read this message, the Lord reminded me of Hebrews 12:6-11

        “For whom the Lord loves He chastens,
        And scourges every son whom He receives.”
        7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”

  1. I very much agree, especially with that last line! Someone once asked me if I would turn back time if I could. My answer (the short version) was no, because without my mistakes I wouldn’t have learned the lessons that I did.

  2. I really like this post. At the beginning I was so angry with people leaving negative comments, sometimes on the blog, sometimes in life.
    But I got to understand in the future, as time flew by, that these criticisms really help us develop and learn new things, discover new insights about ourselves.

    I believe that before getting angry on a negative comment the best thing is to reflect upon it. What did the author meant to say? How can I change the reality in my behalf?

    Thank you for sharing! 🙂

  3. It’s like Thomas A. Edison said: “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” I have always learned more from my failures than from my successes – even if I only learned to slow down and proofread better…because I left the “l” out of “public”…in a privacy policy letter that went out to a few thousand clients!! 😳

  4. This is excellent advice. It is something to take to heart. Very well written too. I am very hard on myself and especially tended to hold on to every mistake. My burdens were great and I had asked for forgiveness and therefore had it. Yet I continued to hold on to past mistakes I had made when young. Once I grew older and really did let go of my past mistakes I felt so free. We do grow from our mistakes but we don’t have to revisit them. I truly hope that young people who are reading this take your advice seriously as it damages the heart and soul of the individual. Great post, thank you. Love 💕 and hugs to you and your loved ones.

  5. Very thoughtful writing and indeed a fact. I have experienced it thoroughly in recent times and my mistake changed me to a whole new person. I still at times feel how can I be that stupid to do such mistake but looking at the brighter side, i have grown up totally after it happened. Thank you for such motivational piece of writing !!!
