One of the main causes of a person’s unhappiness is the inability to recover from a mistake. We all have our share of embarrassing, devastating, and life-changing mistakes in our lives. We have made so many choices, but not all of them are good ones. Over time, we’re going to ponder on our decisions and wish we hadn’t done some of those. Sometimes, we feel mortified for the things we’ve done that we translate our shame into negativity. Once your insecurities get the better of you, you’re going to be afraid to make shortcomings, and sooner, afraid to take risks. These regrets of the past are limiting our beliefs to turning over a new leaf in the present. The deeper we dwell on our mistakes, the less motivated we are to embrace our flaws. Many people are holding themselves back from creating a future they want because they attach their worth to their mistakes.
