You have made a mistake, admit it and apologize to the respective person you have hurt. You can even try curing the damage you have caused. Then what? Is there still anything left you can do in the journey of self-development? Well the answer is yes, but it depends on the size of your mistake. The bigger the mistake you have made, the larger is going to be the route.
For instance, you are running a business and you have made a bad investment or mismanaged your finances which resulted in losing up your business then obviously you will have to deal with major consequences. But if you have made a small mistake like missing a friend’s birthday party, then you can make up for that easily.
When a person makes small mistake then the best think you can do to make it up is apologies to the relevant person and move on in life. For instance, if you come up late for work then it is really important for you to realize the mistake and do not repeat it again, also you can even devise a plan to reach office on time and traffic jams will not affect your arrival time.
But if you have caused a blunder, I will not even call it a mistake. For example, you almost killed a person by your car because you were drinking or talking on phone while driving. Or another instance could be you left your stove open in the house and went for office and when you came down; your house was burnt to ashes. In such major cases, law might decide your further consequences. Your life will be full of insurance and financial issues. But as you know you did not do it purposely, so it is not a crime but a mere accident. One needs to support themselves at such crucial time. These major mistakes can have a bad impact on your psyche as well as well-being. Mental illness is one of the most common results after such a mishap. But one needs to maintain the equilibrium.
You need to reassure yourself that this was not something which you intended but it just happened, you are not an evil person but you have a committed a mistake and you need to deal with it now.
The best way of dealing with serious mistakes is to get surrounded by people who love you; they can be your family, friends, co-workers or relatives. You need to rebuild your self-esteem and self-confidence. Many people end up thinking that they are worthless which leads to depression. But you need to know, this is not true at all.
The best thing to do in a situation is to realize your mistake, ask for apology and try to make good of the hurt. Also, make sure you do not repeat it in future. You are also going under the agony, so make sure you get enough support of your loved as you are definitely worth it.
