Making mistakes is okay and everyone does, and no one is 100% perfect. The best thing about making mistakes is that we can learn from them and improve ourselves from what we have done.
What we should not to do with mistakes is to blame others no matter how hard it is to own up about it, it doesn’t look good for you and never works out for the best.
Recently for some unknown reason I have becomes someone else’s scapegoat.
It started off as small things I was blamed for, that was easily sorted But it it then moved on to bigger things and more serious.
After it all came out I was pretty hurt by it, since it wasn’t something I really expected or maybe should have, and I had also thought they were more respectful than this.
In this situation I was being blamed and lied to especially when I tried so hard and was a friend ( or well thought I was) to this person, and they clearly didn’t feel the same, and only saw me as an easy target.
But this also hasn’t worked out well for the other person at all. I can no longer trust this person and neither can others, which is never a good situation to be in.
So the moral of this post is even though it may feel easier to blame someone else for your mistakes but in the end it will never work out for you, the way you may have hoped it would and you may lose people because of these simple mistakes.
Also it is far easier to sort out and learn from when you just put your hand up admit and say ‘I’m sorry’. Your ego may only be broken for a short while but you will be stronger at the end of it.
Thanks for letting me rant 😉
