It’s easy to be negative, to beat yourself up and overthink all of the mistakes that you’ve made. Hindsight is 20/20 and with that it is easy to see what you did wrong and how you could have done better. I personally am my own worst critic and can be downright ruthless to myself when I fuck up. Having no problems recognizing my flaws or noticing my mistakes, overlooking anything positive about a situation and focusing only on the negatives. So before anyone else even knows about it I have already beaten myself up pretty good. Then the peanut gallery finds out and the beatings continue. People are quick to judge a person for their mistakes, acting like they themselves have never made mistakes and assuming that if they had been in that situation they would have handled it so much better. Nobody ever compliments someone for a mistake. In my opinion mistakes are only mistakes if you repeat them, otherwise they’re just lessons. Granted some of them are hard fucking lessons but if you learn and grow from them they are just footsteps on your path to glory. You’re gonna make mistakes, it’s part of life. It doesn’t matter how many times you get knocked down as long as you keep getting up. Pain goes away, dirt washes off, chicks dig scars and glory lives forever. Remember who you are and how far you’ve come, strength is forged in fire and you’re a strong motherfucker. Don’t let the opinions of sheep dictate the life of a wolf.
