I have had alot going on in my life and have realized so much that I was being so immature and childish with hurt feelings and stress in my life that I was lashing out at everyone around me and wasn't seeing that they were being there for me....I've made so many mistakes that I'm not proud of and can't change and I wish I could but all I can do now is learn from my mistakes and move forward and be happy in life.... I believe I'm stronger because of the mistakes I've made and have had to learn from and I will only be a better person because I can admit to them....Also I may make mistakes in the future but that is also a part of life.....I just am sad to see so many relationships I've had fall and have lost because of my immature ways....Please share your stories with me HappyMylotting.

I think everyone at some point in time makes a mistake, or does or says something that they aren't proud of. It is all part of life! BUT the main thing is that you learn from it and try to prevent it from happening again in the future. That is all anyone really can do!

We cant never undo the damage of our mistake if were not trying to fixed it up..Mistakes can be your motivation.Instead of downing yourself,try to stand up and make a new start.The important is you learned your lesson.

if you recognized this it means that you have grown a lot, you became more amture than you were before. it's never to late to change things, even it means that you change yourself how you act. i do belive that your life is how you made it to be. i was about two years ago when in a seminar i was told that where i am now in life, how my life is, everything about it is the resolt of my decisons that i made 5 years ago. so ever since than i'm trying to live so after 5 years i would and up in the place where i want to be in 5 years.

Sweetie Everyone learns by their mistakes all through their Lifes As you say you can only learn from them and make sure that you do not make them again yes there will be more mistakes no doubt there will be but that is the lesson to Life, just sometimes we have to learn the hard way before we realise and that is what hurts more but that is what they call, well you would not learn the easy way so this is the only way to learn But you are doing right go forward and learn from your mistake Hugs

If Ms Philippines gave that answer to the judge, she might have won the title. =) Anyway, it is nice that you realized your mistakes and it is a good start that you acknowledge it and willing to make it better. As for me, I used to be too possessive of things and people I love the most that it almost suffocate them. So just like you I have already started to do my part to change for the better and to learn from those wrong things that I have done.

That is great that you have and I think at some point we have all felt that way but it's how we choose to deal with it that can make all the difference happymylotting.

Honestly I like making mistakes, not because of the fun but because it makes me a better person. It changes me. It molds my characters. The most exciting part of making mistake is that it takes a lot of humility to admit you make one.

I've never looked at it like that before but yes it does make us who we are.

I think when your sad its because you choose to be sad or when your happy its because you choose to feel that way not really because you are.

That can be true but I'm not really choosing to be sad right now I just feel sad for the lost friendship but am extremly happy right now at the same time for something else that happened in my life recently

We all have mistakes that we are not proud of. We can't take back what we have done or hurts that we have caused other people, but we can try to make amends. We can try to restore the relationship and be more careful this time. We all have to experience these things in order to learn in life. The important thing is to learn the lesson and not make the same mistakes again

So very true we all make mistakes that we cannot change but learn from them I am sad to say I don't believe it's enough to mend the friendship I once had as a result of my mistakes i made but I'm feeling better in knowing we have accepted each others aplogy and explained and listened to each other.

As long as we live are required to always learn from the mistakes we've ever done. I also experienced like you. I've made the mistakes that have hurt people I care about. I feel sorry and always blamed myself, if any mistake have I done. Because of these problems, I have no friends anymore. But I now have to get up and do not dissolve in sadness. Happiness has come now, because people I loved to forgive my mistake. I will not miss this opportunity to change for the better.

hi blueandelrs I made a lot of errors in the months before my son lost his job. I knew he was unhappy as they had hired him with the promise of forty one thousand a year and in four months had been so lousy business men they had to renege on his wages and cut his salary to 19 dollars an hour for computer programming. He said he really should look for another job but hated the hassle. right then I should have said,do look for another job now, you are unhappy and there are other jobs out there.but I did not do it and then suddenly they bombed out and laid him off. And then the economy had suddenly changed, no jobs and the companies he applied to were actually starting to lay off men and women. My son was fifty,and I was retired at 83 but with only a small social security check. I should have been contributing something though as we were paying so much more rent than ever before now suddenly the economy was horrid, and he was jobless we were out of money and were behind in rent so of course a manager being a blood sucking vermon immediately evicted us. we were made homeless. now I am here in this tiresome retirement center, and hurray he has now got a job, he is still in the gov;sponsored apt with three other men.oh I am stronger for having seen so many here so m uch much worse off physically and mentally than myself. but I dislike the loss of personhood here. we are planning to eventually get enough money to rent another apartment and move in together again.

I am a huge believer of saying that life is what you make it. I hate it when things are going wrong in the lives of my friends and then they sit and blame everyone else apart from theirselves. Even though things happen in our lives which are not our fault, I do believe that it is what we do about the situation that defines what happens next.
