Everybody makes mistakes
So I’ve done some pretty stupid things in my life, made some silly mistakes and had some regrets, even though I try live to the Contiki motto no regrets to the greatest of my ability (because whenever you do something, you wanted it at the time so don’t regret it later). But I’ve done some things that I didn’t actually want to do at the time. And then I start to self pity myself, etc. But you know what- just own up to it. Yes, I have made some mistakes in my life, and you also have done so or may do some pretty silly things and mistakes in your life one day but always remember that it is OKAY. We all do these things, you’re not alone. And if you think to yourself: “Yeah well, I’ve never heard of anyone else who’s done that before,” well did you ever think to yourself that maybe someone has done exactly the same thing as you but they have just been as embarrassed and ashamed about it as you are and therefore haven’t spoken about it and then that’s the reason that you haven’t heard of anyone else that’s done that before? You are not alone in this world, no matter how lonely it may feel at times.You aren’t the only one who’s made those specific mistakes in your life. Maybe try opening up a little more. You’d be surprised how many people may just do the same back to you and may even relate to the things you have done or experienced. People are all so different yet so alike at the same time. Don’t be afraid to talk about your thoughts, feelings and silly mistakes. Don’t bottle it in. And most of the time, those mistakes are life lessons, which we all need and most of the time thrive from and make us better people! Everything happens for a reason. Everybody makes mistakes; nobody is perfect. And in my opinion, it’s our imperfections that shape us and makes us the beautiful people that we are. It makes us unique.
