The ultimate lesson all of us have to learn is unconditional love, which includes not only others but ourselves as well.” Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
We make a mistake, we have to go out and make amends. If we did something wrong, and we apologized and made a commitment never to do it again, it’s time not to keep beating ourselves up. We can’t let mistakes trigger our shame. We did wrong but we, ourselves, are not wrong.
We’re all in Life 101. Every day, we’re beginners. Each semester, we can learn from the past and try to do better. But we’re going to keep making mistakes. That’s part of being human and being alive.
How well do we recover from our mistakes? That’s what the learning is. That’s where the spiritual lessons are garnered.
To be a hero of our lives, we have to remember: No pain, no gain.
