Life Lessons

This is a Movella filled with life lessons. It's not a story, or full of poems. It is simply full of what I've learnt from life, and what others have learnt.

23. Make Mistakes

Hey guys. I know, I know, we all make mistakes. But that is what makes life, well, life. We learn from our mistakes. Take away the lessons and move on. Those of us who don't make the right type of mistakes will not get anywhere. Period. You need to make mistakes to see where you can improve.

There are silly mistakes too, but they are just something that we have to accept. I make stupid mistakes. All the time. Like, forgetting to charge my phone, or not throwing away an apple core, leaving it to go mouldy in my lunchbox over the weekend. But it's the big mistakes that shape me as a person.

If I hadn't made the mistake of posting something that I shouldn't have, I wouldn't have started writing 'Orthorexia: How She Changed My Life'. If I hadn't done badly in Maths last year, I wouldn't be doing as well as I am now. And if I hadn't gone out with Wes, I would still be living in blissful ignorance. Granted, that situation brought me a lot of trouble, but I've come out of it a better person and although I have lost friends, I have gained the respect of many people that I thought didn't know I existed. It has also proved that I am a trooper, and that I can get through rough times. And it proves to myself that I don't need a boyfriend right now. School is the most important thing right now, my writing comes second and music comes third. 

Also, I find that when faced with a sticky situation that makes me angry or upset relating to a mistake, I work better. I become more determined and focused. A sticky situation was the last thing I needed the week of my third English GCSE Controlled Assessment on Of Mice And Men, but, I actually did really well in it for the simple reason, I channeled all my anger into determination to do the best I could, and I did it.

So, when someone doesn't forgive you for a mistake you made, brush it off because you're only human, and we all make mistakes. Chances are, that person will never make mistakes, and will never get anywhere in life anyway.
