As a human being, one has been endowed with just enough intelligence to be able to see clearly how utterly inadequate that intelligence is when confronted with what exists.
I sometimes say, when I meet a sharp younger person, “If I knew what I know now, at your age, by now I’d be king. All of us have the desire to know more and have made so many blunders. So why not learn from my mistakes and the errors of others. Or, you can live a few lifetimes and take all the missteps yourself. Can you afford it?
Taking ownership of failure builds the foundation for success.
Use the experience to go forward having learned what not to do again. Do not be disheartened by occasional mistakes or failures. Turn the next similar situation around by not repeating the incorrect act or decision. Do not dwell one moment on your past mistakes. All flowers need manure. Satoru
Thank you for permission to forgive myself! Hugs, Jan
