Franciszek Bartnik Posted 6 months ago Why we do not accept our mistakes? I must say Mary's has pretty much in a way answered your question already. that talk was great. But i still wanted to post something from myself, even if you might read it somewhere else. Mistakes are good for us in the long run. The reason is, because they are what connects us back to reality. We imagine things, have opinions etc. which might end up being wrong. At the beginning, noticing a mistake generally means life is going to be harder than we at first imagined(but not always:). We do accept our mistakes, but only in a certain time perspective. It is most important to remember than it is not that there is something wrong with us or our methods. There is no way avoiding mistakes. We need to try to stay humble and anticipate mistakes. Accept that there are things which are bigger than us, and that not WE decide what is right and wrong. Life is the search for truth. When we possess the truth, that's when we are wrong.
