Sadje is our hostess for the Sunday Poser question
This week my question is:
How quick are you in admitting your mistakes?
I suppose it all depends on what the mistake was and why we made it.
I’ve made some classics, but luckily for me, they have had a positive outcome, even if it did take some considerable time.
My first marriage was a mistake, and in hindsight I realised that we both got married for all the wrong reasons.
Moving away from my home town afterwards wasn’t a mistake as it was the making of me. However, the circumstances of where I was living was but pride stopped me from admitting I’d made another major error in judgement until things came to a head in 1988.
Little mistakes we can usually get away with without catastrophe, but mistakes are part of life’s rich tapestry. Yet from the occasional dropped stitch, a new pattern can emerge, perhaps enhancing the original, or even complimenting it.
The saddest part is when we don’t learn from them.
IMO one of the most annoying phrases currently used in politics is ‘Lessons will be learnt’……….. but they never are.
