Errors in your life
July 4, 2007 1:16pm CST
Is it ever too late to go back and improve on your personal mistakes? Is it a question of learning from your past mistakes and be aware of them for future terms? Is it worth going back to the situation where you missed your opportunities? How does God play his role of improving the errors in your life? Is it a question of faith? If all those years of self-doubt and hurt were to continue, when is it the time to finally stop, and to give this life a second chance?

I believe, that we can always improve upon ourselves, any time of our life, provided we have the 'will and desire to imporve'. I think, that missed opportunities cannot be brought back..but there is always hope for new opportunities. One should not lose heart....one will surely get the opportunities in life.

No human being is left out without making errors only the quantum of commiting those errors differs from one to another. Most important is rectifying the error, admitting the error and deciding not to commit the same once again will defintly improve life.Its my personal experiance. I have repented upon some errors did in my past and it always stays in my heart reminding me not to commit it again and be careful with my steps.Some errors like this improve life but some commit errors which cannot be given forgiven by god.second chance is possible only for some errors.

A human being is imperfect. It is nicely said "To Err Is Human". Had he been perfect, he won't make any mistakes. Given the above it should be admitted that there will be mistakes and mistakes. After all even Eve made mistakes and was driven out of heaven. So one should forget one's past. If one can rectify one's mistakes, all the good. If not, then one should move on and not to repeat. What else one can do?

To Err is Human. So personally, I will always look for rectifying my errors that I have done in the past. And I have done that too, so far in my life. Errors do happen for everyone in their life. Its upto the person, to rectify his/her errors so that atleast in the future , he/she will be able to do the things properly and will not miss anything like the ones he/she missed in the past becuase of his/her mistakes.

We all make mistakes in life because we are human - but don't take them as failures but as stepping stones - each mistake teaches us something and although we can correct our errors - they make us wise enough not to make the same mistakes again.

Dear touchinshine, Without doing error nobody can correct himself/herself. Error is giving a person an idea as how clever is he. We can learn and improve through our errors only. One error create in the heart of the people a conviction that he should not commit the same error again. The feeling and conviction avoid him from committing the same error again and again. Thanks, Have a nice day.

i believe that no one is perfect. human as we are, we commit mistakes. life is full of challenges that makes our lives more interesting. would'nt it be a bore if it was'nt? it is from our wrongs that we learn to be right. dont dwell on the pain & the hurt the mistakes caused you. everyday is a learning process for us. what is important is that we learn to stand up everytime we fall & will always try to pick-up the pieces & learn from the mistakes and be always ready to face the world with our heads up high & show everyone that we can always do better things for us & for others as long as we live.

I think that mistake and errors come for some reason. It is hurt when we have to deal with it, but will give us a chance to grow up and to learn. I've ever done a mistake that makes me regret forever and I wished I could go back and change it. But now I already forgive myself for that mistake and I do really see my life through different angle now because of that mistake..

Better late than never.So the question of late does not arise.Man should try to learn from the past mistakes and try to avoid it in his present actions an build up a defence for the future.Introspection makes one aware of the capabilities he has.One should learn from the shortcomings he sustained and plug the loopholes.Albert Einstien had once said that the definition of insanity is to repeat the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.So we shall learn from the past and lead a better life avoiding all the follies of the past.Prayer will give the discerning capacity to differentiate chaff from the grain.Let the almighty GOD gives us all the strength to do that.

The biggest mistake I ever made in my life was my failure to finished my education and to think that I was almost there. It is sometimes hard to explain even to myself how it happen: it is as if there was this force that really sucked me into doing some crazy stuffs and making some indecisions. Now, I am reaping all the side effects of that great failure. I am really disappointed with myself. If only it is possible to go back with time. However, I now have the plan of going back to school.

Hello touchnshine! Well I believe that everything in life happens for a reason and from my perspective there is always a chance for us to improve ourselves if we are willing and able to accept the mistakes we have made in the past! Anyone can say that they have learned from their mistakes, but it the effort that you make to sacrifice the things that led you to those mistakes that will ultimately allow you to change. I have made mistakes in the past that I am not proud of and if it wasn’t for my faith in the lord and the belief that he has a plan for my life, I don’t think I would have changed. At one point in my life I was truly a selfish person, all I cared about was making me happy and the freedom to make my choices. Along the way I had hurt my parents and my family, but then one day I found out I was pregnant and everything soon became clear for me. I embraced my pregnancy as a second chance from the lord, although I knew that there is nothing in this world that could allow me to take away the pain I have inflicted on my family. I believed that my pregnancy came as a blessing and it was the lords way of saying “that it was time for me to let go of my selfishness” and chose motherhood as my way out! Since then I have been clean and live my life for my children, I have given up all my friends who contributed to my mistakes and have chosen to change for the sake of my children. Although we can never go back to the past and change the mistakes we have made, we can chose to leave it behind us and begin to live a life that we can be proud of.
