Don’t call a bad decision a mistake.
We often confuse a wrong call with a mistake. A mistake is when you didn’t know better. A decision good or bad you knew exactly what you were doing. I have made some insane decisions in my life and for a long time called them mistakes. However, life as taught me that you have to call a thing a thing. I own my bad decisions. Some are easier to own up to than others. That’s true with everyone. However, once you get it out there the power that bad decision had over you is broken. When we admit it short comings then no one can use them against you. I highly advise not using people’s bad decisions against them. It is never healthy to be judgmental toward others. What goes around always comes around. Give the benefit of the doubt in every case possible. I understand sometimes it isn’t possible, but it is always possible not to judge others harshly while giving ourself the benefit of the doubt. Many times I know I have judged others by their actions and myself by my intentions. I have learned that this is never healthy in any type relationship. How are you looking at other people’s actions today?
