Love your mistakes - selflovelselfcaresystem

We’re taught from a very young age that mistakes are made when we are not applying ourselves, or when we are not paying attention. The school system works on the platform of right and wrong answers, right and wrong behaviour, right and wrong ideas and opinions that have filtered down over the years (please note I'm not referring to questions that have a direct answer like 1+1=2). None of this is wrong per se, however it has the knock on effect of causing fear when we make mistakes.

The image of everyone sinking into their chairs hoping the teacher will not pick them, comes to mind. How many of us have experienced being laughed at when we were singled out to answer a question, we did not have the answer to?

I am referring to the kind of mistakes that are perceived or do not matter in the grand scheme of life. The type of mistakes that we hold onto for no reason, that informs our future behaviour.
