Do mistakes* make you a bad person?

FullSizeRender (40).jpgIf you haven’t guessed already, I am shit at life. I like to think that I handle all my fails with a certain level of grace. And that level of grace is about the same as a fly frantically hitting the window trying to get out of the kitchen.

What I am not afraid to say is that because of the fault’s I had in the past, heck, the faults I have now. In spite of all the crap, I’ve done and put my parents through, I am now a good person. Whether, some people want to believe it or not.

I could drone on, quoting sayings some Disney character or ramble on about how mistakes allow us to grow as a person. But, do they really? One ‘fail’ doesn’t mean we learn, what is right or wrong. Falling off the track time and time again and getting back up, shows a good person. Reflecting on those times and treating others with the respect they deserve is a utterly epic *insert amazing emoji, here* person.

With so many people judging our abilities, morals and achievements through social media- don’t lie we all stalk and judge. Has our generation, completely missed the memo that is all fake? A good person simply doesn’t come from a great following, but their actions. And what they do inspire of the ‘iffy’ moments we all have! Yes, I am looking at you teenage years.

Isn’t it time we stop throwing mistakes of the past at people who are constantly supporting and showing kindness in the present? If their past mistakes are harming you in any way shape or form, block them. Ignore them, completely take them out of the equation- you’ll feel better for it.

I have been judged by mistakes in the past, hell, I’VE judged me for my mistakes in the past. The mistakes you make at your lowest do not and should not ever define who you are! What you are! Or what will become of your future. It’s time to grab life by the metaphorical balls, and do something you think you can’t.

You’ll thank yourself later.
