Mistakes

There is no one who does not make mistakes. Mistakes are a way of human life, a way of growth. We mistake what we see for the truth. We do not realize that there is always more to life than we can see and that the truth is not always visible to the naked eye.

We mistake what we know for all there is. We don't always know the whole story. When you do not know the whole story, almost any conclusion you draw from observation will be mistaken.

We mistake our experiences, particularly bad ones, to be indications of who we are and what we deserve. Even when we know we deserve better, we mistake our experiences for the obstacles that can keep us from experiences more.

Sometimes, we make the mistake of thinking that other people have the power to control or alter our destiny. It is our beliefs, mistaken and otherwise, that ultimately determine what we will do or be in life.
