Whenever my day isn’t going as well as I’d planned it to, I tell myself that ‘there’s always tomorrow’. This way, I don’t beat myself up about a mistake I’ve made or wallow in self-pity. I just look forward to when that day will be behind me and I can focus on starting all over again.
When we make mistakes, beating ourselves up and feeling sorry for ourselves doesn’t get us anywhere. We can’t control if others want to rub our mistakes in our faces over and over again, but we can control how we deal with it.
I’ve gotten to the point where when I make a mistake and get told off for it, I shrug it off and tell myself that it won’t happen again. I refuse to think about it anymore than that, otherwise I’ll probably end up crying. And nobody wants to see that.
So remember, if you’ve messed up, there’s always tomorrow. You can just start all over again.
Have a great Monday.
