"A man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is but saying... that he is wiser today than he was yesterday."
~ Alexander Pope ~
I have this distorted belief that if I make a mistake or a poor decision that it means I'm a bad person, as if my ability to know how things are going to turn out before they do is a reflection of my intrinsic worth.
My father told me that I make bad decisions.
Maybe that's where this comes from.
Going forth, I want to act more fluidly and forgiving in relation to all the things that seem to be a good idea initially and then turn out not to be.
I do the best I can with the information I have.
