March 3, 2011


Do you ever find yourself making the same mistakes over and over again? Joyce Meyer defines this as going around the same mountain but during different times in your lifetime. There is a statement that says insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I am not saying that you are insane, but this type of behavior may make one feel as if he or she was going insane. Stop making the same mistakes. Instead learn from your mistakes and try a different approach the next time when faced with a similar issue.

Sometimes it is hard to forgive ourselves for mistakes we may have made in the past. People will continually throw our past and our faults in our faces. They will constantly remind us of our inadequacies. Do not listen to them! Sure you have made mistakes; we all have. Some people will try to belittle you for your past, and they will put themselves on a pedestal. However, no one on this planet is void of mistakes in his or her lifetime. Learn to forgive yourself for the mistakes you have made and ignore the negative comments of your adversaries.

Your mistakes do not define who you are, but they are merely stepping stones to form you into a strong, confident adult. Each mistake we make is a learning experience. We can choose to put ourselves down and beat up on our own emotions, or we can choose to look for the lesson that life is trying to teach us. Don't spend so much time brooding on your past mistakes. That is a complete waste of time in the now. Learn to forgive yourself and learn from your mistakes!
