Do Mistakes But Don’t Persevere In Error

nature’s walk

To err is human and we all make mistakes sometimes or the other. Mistakes make us learn, grow and adapt to new things which we would’ve never tried otherwise. I too learned many things in life after committing mistakes. I remember my high school days when my father used to teach me mathematics. I wasn’t very good with numbers and would hate doing ratio, time, and percentage topics daily. I used to commit silly mistakes daily out of carelessness and being impulsive while solving sums. I would be in tears, felt embarrassed every time I did the same mistake but my father was so patient with me and he would keep saying, “Don’t feel bad. Keep practice as practice makes a man perfect.” It was quite annoying at that moment however I could only clear my high school math exam in the first division because of his faith.

I think making mistakes is not at all bad. Not admitting mistakes is worse. A person not taking responsibility for his mistakes lacks a sound moral character. We must accept and rectify it for our own good.

Another thing I want to stress here is that one must not repeat the mistakes when it hurts another person’s sensitivity. A person may hurt someone unintentionally and say sorry, right? But not twice or thrice. It amounts to ignorance. In addition, it reflects the aloof, harsh, insensitive side of a person who lacks empathy or concern for others. That should neither be accepted nor applauded.

I would conclude with these lines, “To err is human, but to persevere (in error) is diabolical.”Making mistakes is human nature, but persisting with the same mistakes is demonic behavior, -Seneca.
