You don’t have to live long, say be 40 years and over in order to start making mistakes. They are a part of your life journey. Some of us our mistakes were the schools we chose to attend, for others it was that job you’re stuck in, for a few others it may be that relationship, and for a lot of people it could even be the choice of friends.
The truth about it is that an individual is bound to make different mistakes concerning various aspects of their life. That is to say it is possible to choose the wrong life partner and job at the same time. It is possible to be in the wrong school and choose the wrong company. Actually what happens sometimes is that one mistake may lead you to make several other subsequent ones.
At this point you’ve just given up on yourself. You can’t forgive yourself for the wrong choices. You beat yourself up day in day out. You subject yourself to emotional pain and psychological trauma because you feel and think that would make you feel better. Unbeknownst to you, it is making you embittered towards yourself.
It doesn’t have to end that way for you sis. You too, can reach out and forgive yourself for the pain you put yourself through, for the struggles, for the wasted years. Whatever it is, it is done. Unlike the Microsoft word application, it can’t be undone.
Here’s what you can do instead;
You can change what you will do moving forward. You can make the decision today to demand what you’re worth, instead of settling for less.
Make better decisions for a better life. Love yourself instead of looking for love in all the wrong places.
Accept your loss, and use it as a lesson. You’ve really got two choices here; you can mop about the past mistakes or you can make better moves and decisions now.
The woman you were, doesn’t have to be the woman you are and the woman you’ll become. Sarah Jakes Roberts says it better, Woman Evolve.
