This quote is absolutely wonderful and I think that everyone should keep that in mind. We all make mistakes, regret chances we did not take, want to turn back time etc. But it is okay! We are human and humanity consits of not being perfect. If you take every failure as a lesson, you will be much happier, because you do not want to make the same mistake twice. We all remember giving a wrong answer in school. And when we were told the right one, we never forgot it.
On the other side, we should not judge others for their mistakes and not give them a second chance, because everyone deserves that, If they do not take it, it is fine. Then you will know how they really are and you can overthink your relationship. Or if they do not want to see their mistakes, it is the same here.
You do not need to be perfect - no one is. Do you know the Hannah Montana song "Nobody's perfect"? - It truly describes the whole thought:
"Everybody makes mistakes
Everybody has those days
You live and you learn it
And if I mess it up sometimes
Sometimes I fix things up
And they fall apart again
I know I mix things up
But I always get it right in the end "
So, get up, keep that in mind, and life will get easier. Enjoy your life, be happy - and remember: Never a failure, always a lesson!
What do you think? What are your motivations?
