The problem with time travel; you always dream too big and think about going back in time to see dinosaurs (they will eat you) or gladiators (they will kill you) or other important moments in history (they will all be racist).
Life sucked back then! You would not want to go back. It is way better to go back one minute at a time so you can fix all your mistakes, like a ctrl-Z for life.
Mistakes are painful but useful ways of learning. However, there are some life mistakes, if avoided in the first place, would have saved you a lot of heart and headache.
These are the mistakes that stem from a lack of knowledge, infrequent self-reflection, or little solid emotional guidance.
These are the mistakes that stick with you for a lifetime if someone or something does not gently (or abruptly) help you to learn from your mistakes.
You need to learn from your mistakes so that you do not run the risk of repeating them. You must develop the wisdom and sense to make good decisions and choices.
Good judgment will only develop if you truly learn from your mistakes.
Unfortunately, for many people, it takes a few repeats of the same mistake to learn the lesson. Unfortunately, many people are stuck in their arrogance or ignorance and never learn from their mistakes.
If you always blame your bad outcomes on others, then you have not learned anything. If you have not learned from anything, you will continue to have bad experiences that will cause you to make more poor judgments.
Until you realize that, you will continue to suffer. Too many people remain in denial and place the blame on others. The minute you take responsibility for yourself is when the learning process will begin.
When you admit your mistakes, you hasten your learning development.
Growth starts as soon as you recognize your mistake and how to prevent it from happening again. It is much more beneficial to face the mistake than to escape from it because it will never be solved by itself.
Looking at mistakes and working toward understanding them will promote progress and insight. It is normal to feel shameful about an error you have made, but you cannot hide in denial.
