Dealing with Guilt
It's crazy, isn't it? We have trouble letting go of our mistakes because we are afraid that if we forget we may make the same mistake again. But letting go (or forgiving ourselves) is different than forgetting or not learning from our mistakes. What would it feel like if you accidentally hurt a friend and every day they reminded you of what you did? You probably wouldn't want to even be friends with them anymore...so why are we so mean to ourselves?
If we are our own best friend than we can acknowledge our mistake, learn from them and become the person we want to be. Many successful entrepreneurs say that they make a million mistakes before they find success in their venture. The same philosophy goes for life...everyone makes mistakes but few learn from them. The choice is ours....feel bad about our mistakes and constantly live in doubt of ourselves .....or evolve and learn from our mistakes.
