Through our mistakes, we have the opportunity to reflect and learn something new. When we look at the consequences of an action we have just done, is when we recognize the mistake we made. Because of this, it is difficult to prevent some errors, because we can only recognize them once we have committed them. Develop the ability to recognize and accept our mistakes extends our vision of reality, compels us to assume our responsibility and teaches us, also, to recognize the presence of people affected by the consequences of our mistakes. We hear everyday phrases such as: making mistakes is human, an error either, commits it etc.
but the most important thing is that we have the disposition of commitment to do whatever is necessary to correct them. Some parents, for example, fear to acknowledge an error against their children for fear of losing its authority or respect by them, when, in fact, to so would be a sign of wisdom, humility and love. Certainly not It is easy to accept our mistakes, because it hurts our self-esteem. Sometimes it gives us penalty that others discover that we’ve made a mistake; others, we were paralyzed by fear to return to us to be wrong, or it can also happen that instead of assuming our responsibility and repair our mistakes, we seek to blame someone for them. In reality, know that we have the right to be wrong and be willing to learn from it, gives us the freedom to be authentic, make better decisions and grants us permission to dare to perform new activities with more security and confidence. Sometime, the day that we have made a serious mistake, we come, but despite the shame we feel, must not flee from the responsibility or get aggressive or defensive when others make us a comment thereon; Our goal must be, at that time, trying to repair the damage in the most dignified way possible. Many people believe that recognize an error can be a sign of weakness and that it can also represent the possibility of losing respect by the loved ones is not so! Definitely admit that we were wrong deserves our appreciation and esteem for them, especially if they see us make effort to overcome it and not repeat it.
Assume our mistakes allows us to grow and mature internally. In addition, all the mistakes are an opportunity to learn something new about ourselves, others and life. There are two simple ways to learn and mature: do it for error and success, recognizing and assuming the consequences generated in our elections. If you have children, the next time one of them makes a mistake ask to assume their responsibility without pressing him or punish him immediately for the mistake committed. Instead, explain the potential consequences and invite you to take part in the process of finding the solution and the medium so that it does not happen again. We think, often, that errors are a failure, but in reality, we can see them as a valuable tool that allows us to learn, grow, make changes and overcome the limitations.
