I fuck up relationships, everyday tasks, careers. I fuck up. It’s just a fact of life. I just don’t know any better. I think I know things and then I realize I’ve been getting everything wrong for so long.
Wake up calls suck. It’s why I’m really choosy in what I take a hard stance on. I try to stay flexible and open. I have to say that sometimes we get stuck in our ways. You think your way is the right way because you don’t know any other way. You can’t know things you have never thought of.
That’s why it’s so important to keep an open mind. Even if you don’t agree with someone there is still something to learn from every interaction we encounter. I try to take the best parts from every interaction I have. I try to learn from my own mistakes as well as other peoples mistakes.
I’m used to perpetually having to tell myself what an idiot I am, and that’s okay. I use these learning experiences to better myself. Every time I fuck up, I get better. Sometimes I fall into stupid things, but typically once I know better, I know better.
Learning from other people is a great way not to fuck up. The problem is, we need to listen to each other in order to gain this knowledge. We are living in a time where people just talk instead of listening. This is dangerous. Fucking up is okay. We can laugh about it. Fucking up is a part of life.
Fucking up has made me a better person. I’m not afraid to fuck up because I know that there will always be something in it for me. Life is about learning. If we are not constantly learning and striving to be better people, what are we doing?
