Response to "Swallowing Your Pride, Swallowing Your Mistake"
Hello. Good day.
The "good" things about making mistakes are (non-exhaustive) as follows: -
(1) It makes one learn better. Without failures, wherein lies the experience? From learned experiences to insights and finally, wisdom
(2) It makes one humble. Without failures, one tended to be on Cloud Nine... A recipe for a downfall... if not, disaster...!!!
(3) It allows us to practice tolerance i.e. acceptance that things don't necessarily go right all the time...
So, is making mistakes necessarily bad??? It depends... on one's perspectives and of course, not forgetting the consequences...Have a nice day... Amitabha...
