Making mistakes is an essential part of humanity, and there is always something to learn from them. But I HATE making mistakes. Let’s face it, for those us who self-identify as “overachievers” or “perfectionists”, we are hit hard when we mess up. It is one thing to know that everyone makes mistakes, but it feels terrible when it actually happens. Despite, the internal shame, embarrassment, and the natural tendency to beat oneself up, it’s best to face it with humility and grace. Give your overachieving perfectionist self the day off, make your apologies and make note of “lesson learned.”
