More often than not, clients come in to talk about some “huge mistake” they’ve made and how that “mistake” has defined them. Admittedly, there was a point in my life where I felt the same. I have learned a new way of thinking about mistakes and, in my opinion, …
… everyone is human and everyone makes mistakes.
… our mistakes do not define who we are.
… it is how we correct our mistakes that define us.
… we can evolve through our mistakes.
… we need to reveal and own our mistakes. If we blame others for our mistakes – or if we hide them – they will become much bigger problems. So, we need to acknowledge our mistakes and apologize (sincerely) to those we’ve impacted.
…we need to take time to reflect on our mistakes, recognize our patterns (of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors), and implement change.
…we can all benefit from sharing our mistakes and what we have learned through our process of reparation.
…we can inspire others in the ways that we choose to handle our mistakes.
