  1. It wasn’t a mistake per se but when I didn’t get into the university I really wanted to get into. It was a blessing in disguise because it taught me resilience & I met some amazing people.

  2. I was in an abusive and emotionally manipulative relationship with a person for around 2 years, took almost an year to pull myself out of it, but I can strongly say that it has changed me as a person in ways that nothing else could ever have. I can feel how strong it has made me, taught me how important it is to stand up for myself, my self respect and principles in life, how important it is to choose the right people to be with, and most importantly, how important it is to love and be loved by someone worth it. It taught me what sacrifice is, how vital self love is in life, the importance of pain, patience and kindness. The best part is that it didn’t break me as a person, it only helped me climb higher and live a life of empathy and hope.
    All this seems far behind me right now, I feel incredibly blessed to have found a great partner even after such a disastrous episode in my life, who understands me to the core and is like my twin flame. I couldn’t have asked for more, every time I think about him I only realise how grateful I am to have taken the decision to walk out of my previous situation with the hope that I still have a life out there.
    Pain teaches more than happiness can. It sometimes guides you through the right directions. That unfortunate phase of my life is what made me what I am today, I am a better version of myself, someone I am proud of and will be for life. So never ever hold regrets, keep walking and things are going to be fine, it’s okay to make mistakes and lose control. Just don’t stop trying.
    If you are reading this remember you are special, and someone somewhere is waiting for their life to be touched by you, keep fighting, love.

  3. Not really a mistake in that I could control it, but my crisis at day activities last year. I was askekd to find new day activities then, which I found very troubling but eventually did.

      1. I can’t tell for sure which version of my life would be ‘better’ as I only actually lived this version, however that was a major crossroads that would definitely led somewhere different.
        I’m really happy with who I am now but being generally a pacifist I’m pretty sure that other path would’ve involved a lot more inner conflict or self repression.
        Who knows- I’m just glad I didn’t go that way

      1. Well, I was so in love then so well, the things we do for love! 🙂 We broke up 2 weeks after I arrived, though, thought it’s the biggest mistake I’ve ever did in my life, but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. 🙂

  5. I think it’s about accepting that everything happens for a reason & as long as we learn the lesson / make the most of it, then they’re not mistakes as much as learning opportunities that we grow from.

  6. I’d argue that all of my mistakes or “failures” were just life lessons that I have grown from. Even my worst mistake has taught me so much about what I needed to do to become a better person. It’s all in how you look at it. One door might close, but it opens another.
