The Most IMPORTANT Thing You Can Learn From Your Biggest Mistake..


What’s the one thing you can learn from your biggest mistake??

Well, first of all it was a mistake; not a life sentence. You don’t have to spend the rest of your life crucifying yourself over your past or current mistakes. You should never allow yourself to live in bondage of your hurtful thoughts or other people’s hurtful words. Mistakes will always be made. The key is to not repeat those same mistakes over and over again. Learn from them and move on. Sometimes, that’s easier said than done so the very first thing you really need to do is forgive yourself. So many of us ask God for forgiveness and indeed HE DOES Forgive us. When you truly repent and say “I’m sorry” in your heart to God.. He lets that thing go! He doesn’t hold it over your head. “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Corinthians 12:9) So really God is giving us a clean slate each time to start all over again but sometimes we miss that because we’re too busy beating ourselves up.

If you have personally offended someone or hurt them then make sure you do your part in taking ownership for the mistake and apologizing then let God take it from there. You can’t force people to forgive you and you most certainly can’t rush them but you can begin the road to recovery by first forgiving yourself. “Release the need to replay a negative situation over and over again in your head. Don’t become hostage to your past by always renewing and reliving your mistakes. Don’t remind yourself of should’ve, could’ve and would’ve. Just release and let it go. Move on.” -Les Brown

A good way to actually start moving on after you’ve forgiven yourself is to practice the action of reframing from negative” self-talk. Seriously, you will never speak to anyone else as much as you speak to yourself in your own head.. so BE NICE!! Think happy thoughts and speak positive words. Y’all have heard me say this before, there is so much power in the words you speak!! “It is through your words, your thoughts, your actions, and your beliefs that you can possibly be living in bondage because of how you choose to punish yourself due to a mistake you’ve made. If you can forgive yourself and free yourself from your own burden and mistakes then this how you can get back to loving yourself again!!” -Tatiana Jerome

Forgive yourself. You are always allowed to start over and show up for yourself in the best way.❤

Love you,

  1. Great post Jessica!!!! Your writing is inspirational as always. I do agree that mistakes are not life sentences, and that we push ourselves too hard. We often think that we make a mistake because of our personality, when in fact it should be a learning experience for us to grow from!

    What I’ve learned from the biggest mistake I’ve made, is to spend time with the people important to you, be honest with them and create healthy relationships with them! Also, to recognise the ones who bring you down, and cut off ties with them 😄

  2. i totally agree. Some people punish themselves from there mistakes instead of learning from it, forgiving themselves and moving on. Mostly its because they have no friends to talk to or people they can look up to or be inspired by. I hope your post reaches alot of people who need it.

  3. I’ve made terrible mistakes in th past but this particular one hurts so bad. I keep wishing I could rewind time and go back to get things better. I’ve spoken to myself positively but the hurt is still there probably because this mistake is glaring right before me. I’ve asked God to take it away but it doesn’t seen to work but recently I’ve begin to focus on God’s love and how he foreknew that I would get to this stage of my life. This reality struck me so I’ve learnt to stop over hitting the issue and start living in God’s love for me. Little by little this too shall pass.

    • Amen & it WILL pass!! I know how you feel because I’ve wrestled with mistakes before like that too. It’s not easy and most certainly not simple but one thing that I’ve finally come to terms with is.. If God doesn’t change the situation, then he’s trying to change your heart or your attitude.
      Keep praying and keep speaking positive words to yourself and over your life because like I said, your words have power. They carry more weight than you think. You will get thru it and it will get better! Before you know it, you’ll be looking back and seeing just how much it actually grew you.
      Sending lots of love, prayers and positive vibes your way!! 🙂

  5. This was such a great post! It makes my heart warm seeing you openly talking about god and his forgiveness, I’m so happy and I completely agree with how you should speak to yourself, I’ve never been a rude person so when I was younger I’d ask my self “is this something you’d say to your friends?” And I think that’s how I’ve owned this positive attitude I have towards things! ✨
