Are Mistakes Good Or Bad?

Today’s World

Why is it that in today’s society so many people do their best to forget the mistakes they have made or others have made upon them?

This is a growing issue I think cause it ends up with people making the same mistakes over and over again throughout the course of their lives.

Trust me, I know that some things can be painful and might stay in your memory forever. Often times I wish I could forget all the things I have been through. Every time I reflect upon it though I end up realizing that I could not be who I am today if all those things had not happened.

If I dig to deep in my memories then it can become depressing or painful quickly! However, I have realized that keeping them near the surface and yet “not” on the surface keep them very close to your heart. The closer they are the more apt they are to help stop you from allowing another to bring you harm or maybe you to others. I don’t know, perhaps this only makes sense to me?

If you remember to well then that will end up hurting more then help. If you forget altogether then it will hurt even more cause I will bet the exact same thing will happen again eventually. I guess the balance would be, forget the mental picture, but never forget the pain.

I do not like pain! Emotional pain however often results in a better outcome. I would be more worried if I felt nothing at all then I would if I felt too much. Without our feelings we are not different at all. I would not want to be the same as everyone else, it is not that I dislike others, but I do enjoy being unique.

I shall have to ponder over this and continue it later I guess… it is a interesting yet difficult subject sometimes.

good things you learn once, bad things you learn many times.

These tears I cry
Lay burnt upon my cheek
Etching a scar
Of the lonely and weak
My innards churn
For the dark one to come
To feel the lessons
Yet to be won
My body and soul
Wants nurture, you see
Not found without
But within----it is me
I am the source
Of the light to be found
Yet falter, and muddle
And sink to the ground
Rise little girl
Come out of that hole
Take my hand
Before you fold
I will be strong
And show you the way
Today, tomorrow
I will not stray.
