Everybody makes mistakes. It’s a normal part of life. You can’t let mistakes stop your progress, and sometimes the only thing you can do is move on. Before moving on, however, you should think things over and make sure you learn from the errors you have made.

Certain mistakes will be painfully obvious and the fallout will happen immediately. Other mistakes may be more subtle, and it may take weeks, months, or even years before you realize you had made a mistake.

Mistakes can also be repeated several times over before you realize they are wrong. What you must do, and what is often the hardest part of life, is to stop making the mistake as soon as you realize you’ve done something wrong. And then you must do your best to avoid making the same mistake again.

If you feel guilty, don’t dwell on it. Just figure out the best way to correct the things you’ve done wrong, and if you can’t fix it, try to work around it. Eventually, when the appropriate amount of time has passed, you should be able to look back and know that you are now a better person.
