What is one of the biggest mistakes you have made that something good came out of it?

That is a good question especially when you ask what good came out of it. Gosh I am thinking and it is really hard, I made lots of mistakes but to say that good came out of them. I suppose I could say that good in general came out of them because we learn from our mistakes, at least sometimes. I would say I quit a job, I didn't like prematurely once, but the good that came out of it was that I went to school and got a masters degree.

The biggest mistake I made was to get involved with my children's father. I knew going into it that it probably wasn't my best choice but for some strange reason I did. I've got some beautiful children out of the deal though so I guess it wasn't all bad.

I think it was meeting my oldest sons dad, mind you I was pretty out of control at the time but the pregnancy definately changed my life forthe better and even with his special needs my son is definately sonething good coming from something very bad.

lots of them . in fact i do not ever regret havign done anythign as good does come out of every action, it is just the attitude which matters. the latest mistake that i made was agreeing to marry someone my mother thought was right for me and guess what... i am soooo happy i made that mistake, he turned out to be a gem!

This is actually something I think about alot. Mainly because I try to see the good in any situation. I would have to say the biggest mistake I made that something good came from was my last marriage. You know there's a problem when 3 months into it you wish you hadn't done it but... stuck it out for 8 years. The good that came out of it was my daughter. Ok, I may get upset with her at times but she is my daughter, I love her dearly, and she has provided me with great joy and 2 of the most beautiful grandchildren in the world.

I can't just think of any. Maybe failures which opened up for some better opportunities for me.
