“Our mistakes don’t define us as a person.” That’s what I always remind myself whenever I feel so down and unmotivated. I consumed most of my time reflecting on what my life would’ve been if I didn’t make all the mistakes that I made in the past. Would I still be as strong as I am right now or weaker? More patient and confident? Or would I be the opposite kind of person that I am today? These ideas give me chills! It feels like I’m in the same situations all over again but this time, I already know what am I going to do and what’s going to happen.
I can say that my mistakes made me a better person than I am today. They served as a reminder that I’m not perfect and there’s always room for improvement. That I wouldn’t know who are the people I should trust and keep in my life. And it taught me how to accept that all of my decisions, whether it’s big or small, will not always be right and I should be careful before making any actions.
That’s why I want to say thank you, my mistakes. For allowing me to experience you and teach me valuable life lessons. And for letting me know that everything doesn’t need to be perfect when it comes to relationships, family, faith, friendships and career. Thank you for giving me a realization that you are part of everyone’s journey and not meeting you can make me feel regretful. And because of you, I wouldn’t be able to start appreciating those things and people I have in life.
Thank you so much for reading!
