Our faults in life are not obstacles

As a human being no one is perfect and can make mistakes for any reason, that may be skill issue or something else but we should not allow these mistakes to take over our life in negative path. We need to learn from our mistakes and good or bad we did in the past but doing nothing and regreting past actions is not the solution. I believe that we should know our faults but do not allow their existance to become an execuse for not loving ourself just the way we are. what do you think?

I strongly agree with your statement. We must love ourselves unconditionally. After committing a fault,try to make it right,if there's no way to make it right,move on and learn from it. Faults are just there to shape us to become an strong individual. They should be use to become a better person and never commit a fault over and over again.

I agree. But then, it is very hard not to think about and be affected by our past mistakes or faults. Sometimes, there are people who know at the back of their minds that they must overcome their past mistakes and learn from them, but the fear is just too great, so they can't leap over that obstacle. I think I'm also a victim of this. I have very low self esteem but mostly because of the people around me who do not encourage me. But at the back of my mind, I know that my abilities do not depend on the people around me, but myself! Still, most of the time, it's very hard to overcome those insecurities. But someday, I wish to be able to do so. I think I need to engage in more activities, where I can gain confidence on my own abilities.

I understand it's not easy to overcome from failures but we should remember them to improve and not to hate ourself. Thank You for sharing.

Yes i do agree with you.Nobody is perfect and we all commit mistakes.But it is up to us if we let it control our lives or we will be the one controlling it.Let us not be pessimistic rather let us be optimistic all the time.Failures/mistakes happen for us to become more stronger and wiser in life.Everything happens for a reason!

I totally agree with you. We should try our best to correct the mistakes or wrong deeds we've done in the past. It's not an option to just sit in the corner and keep on regretting something that is correctable. No matter how huge the mistake is we should learn to forgive ourselves and let go. We should learn from our mistakes, not live in fear of committing it again.

I definitely agree, mistakes in my life have shaped me better than success. We look back at mistakes and use them to become better than we were before. With success we don't usually gain or lose anything, which isn't bad. But every mistake I make betters me in some way!

I think if you had told me this say 10 years ago, I would have been happier , sooner. I was a born perfectionist And pessimist! A deadly combination. Once I tried anything and I failed , I would see it as my fault and that I should disappear. But now I see mistakes as simple mistakes. I don't have to be perfect to be loved or liked.

Being perfect is just a feeling in limitation but in generic no one is perfect. So we are allowed to move on with faults as well. Thank You for sharing.

Well we all learn though mistakes and there is no one who has not done single mistake in his life.This can not be a reason to hate yourself life time or believing something like you can not do anything in life.I agree with you completely on this point.

Life is mixture of good and bad, so there will be success and failure which is again dependent on our skills or ability. Respect and love yourself. Thank You for sharing.

I think these mistakes are merely the small obstacles and failures due to short-sightedness. No matter how big our follies are in the life, we should always learn the valuable lesson from it and carry the work ahead, leaving just the traces of those failures behind but touching the success with more vigor and passion. However, its easier said than done. Because there are innumerable examples where society and people around us have influenced us pessimistically to bring flood of negative impact on our conscience. Therefore, it is important that our people, society, peers and relatives understand the importance of positive out of negative too. This is how depressed souls can get motivation and inspiration to succeed in life.

yes, if we learn to understand the importance of positive out of negative, that would be such a great achievement for all and may be we will have less disappointments in life. Thank You for sharing.

..hi.. indeed you are right.. mistakes are supposed to serve as stepping stones and learning experiences for us to become wiser and stronger as we face life's challenges.. sometimes, we react to circumstances without thinking very carefully that's why we commit mistakes.. I don't think we intentionally commit mistakes.. we just didn't think enough on how to react correctly.. if we think we committed grave mistakes, then we need to learn how to forgive our self and become humble enough to admit those mistakes.. only when we forgive our self of our mistakes that we feel peace and we gain the strength to move on.. life is not always winning.. it is actually standing up again and moving on that makes life wonderful..

If we do not make mistakes, God's existance will be in danger, so it's natural to make mistakes but love not to make those mistakes again. Thank You for sharing.

I agree with you. Each mistake should mold us into a better person. We need to identify them as part of growing into a more mature person and gain wisdom from it. If we don't learn from it, it only means we haven't grown at all as a person. Nobody is excused from making mistakes because none of us is perfect, a person who tells otherwise is a hypocrite.
