I’ve made three major mistakes in the last 2 years. One harmless, one intentional, and one naively. The harmless one was an act that was trivial to begin with. One that most of my peers have done. It began with friendship. Ended with bitterness.
The intentional mistake was one that was a youngsters foolery. Knew going in it was foolishness. Didn’t know it’d evade my grasp so easily. In hindsight, I never would’ve done it. Not my style.
Naively, I made a mistake that so many do. It never seems like one initially. And it was so innocent. But my inexperience was my downfall. And I was left with the consequences of a situation that was way beyond me. Messy. In a normal environment, it wouldn’t have gotten so out of hand. But what’s the definition of normal? Oh yea.
If I had a time piece, just one time I’d go back to the innocent mistake. And remembering my lessons, never make that one. For that affected the others, and my nativity affected my judgment. But you know what they say, you live and you learn. Regardless of immaturity and stunted growth within ones environment, it is imperative that the ‘good fight’ and those lessons that were so painfully gained are never forgotten. It’s easy during the rain, but don’t let the sun blind you…
Not all were life changing or bad. But no matter what you do, your decisions will change you and change the environment around you. There are people who have “gotten away” with their mistakes or intentional acts of malice….once again, your decisions shape your environment. Even if no one else does, you do. And believe it or not, lies accelerate the process. And there’s another saying that’s also very true: What’s Goes Around Comes Around.
Don’t ever forget that. We all make mistakes, some worse than others, but some things aren’t worth the scorn. And some people deserve redemption.
The judgment is for both the judged and the person judging..
