About How To Learn From Your Mistakes
Made In The Past
We can all learn from past mistakes – or at least, we should. There are some things that you have to go through again and again before realising that they’re not good for you; others creep up on you over time and some are instant regrets.
Cool Tattoos For Girls
You should always think long and hard about something that is going to be permanent upon your body, and the implications that this mark could have on your future.
Something that may have been on trend when you were younger can grow to be something that you despise as time goes on, but laser tattoo removal is now becoming more common and affordable as an option to rub away the drawings that you no longer want to see.
Getting Rid Of Toxic Friends
These people are probably harder to remove than a bad tattoo. Cutting yourself off completely from another human being is a difficult thing to do, especially if they have been a big part of your life. If you are spending your life feeling guilty at doing simple things like going out with another group of friends, having to explain yourself to somebody and apologise for behaviour that wasn’t out of character or necessarily bad, or are constantly having feelings of anxiety about them, then they are not good for you. It is a hard thing to do, but getting rid of toxic friends can turn out to be a blessing when these feelings subside.
Missed Subjects & Courses
Have you ever looked back on your life and thought “I wish I had taken X subject at school” or gone in a completely different direction with your career? It’s not too late to change, no matter how old you are. There are free distance learning courses available online, and some schools and colleges offer night classes for you to be able to go and take on a subject that you enjoy. They may incur a charge, but this is, unfortunately, the price that you have to pay. With the change in attitude, life and having to part with cash, it is a step towards ensuring that you are focused on the course at hand and will engage with it more so than you would have done back in your school days.
The great thing about piercings is that they can heal over, with the length of the heal depending on your skin type and how fresh your piercing is, and some may disappear completely. If it doesn’t go, most can be hidden – ear piercings are the easiest to hide with longer hair – or concealed with clothing, i.e. belly button piercings.
Having a piercing doesn’t have the same impact as a tattoo, and employers are more likely to be adverse to the body ink than the piercing, but it all depends on where it is placed and how obvious it is. For example, most offices will allow ear piercing studs but not big, dangly earrings, although it all depends on where you work. Make sure that any future piercings are well thought over.
What do you regret today? Is there anything you would do differently if you had the chance again, anything you’d love to get rid off?
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, just be afraid of not learning from them!
Thanks a lot for reading

We all have regrets, but sometimes it’s all about taking risk and be able to fight the fears you’re having and realize that you can do anything you want to do if you’re still confident. Of course confidence doesn’t come right away, and I do have regrets, but sometimes I do feel I made quite good choice. I know I can still learn what I didn’t when I was in Law School, and make any dream I have come true.
I regret not doing my best in college. I know I should’ve done better but I prioritized working instead. Now, all I want is to go back in school.
I think if I have a regret it is that I didn’t take up the course I want in college. Though I dont dwell too much in the past. I know that it can still be learned outside college and that there are more ways to learn especially now that online courses are available. As for others, it really depends on how we cope up with our past mistakes. Some takes longer to learn while others absorb life lessons right away.
I would agree on letting go with the people that would cause harm than do good to you. The experience may be something that is not quite positive although we can use it to move forward. Learn from the past and create a better judgment moving forward. 🙂
I believe that we should be trying to do whatever we feel like to enjoy life. I have learned in my life so far that regret comes from the things we don’t do, not from the ones we do. And getting a tattoo or having a piercing are decisions that you can rectify. I had a piercing for a long time and I loved it. But my body decided to reject it after a while and every time I tried to put it back it rejected it again. I guess that’s a regret but I learned to live with the scar and still love it, as it reminds me of some special moments of my life.
Very true and wise words, Joanna! I don’t know how old you are, but I am sure, knowing all that what you are saying requires some years of experience and some mistakes made. As I said before, making mistakes is not the point, not learning from mistakes is the biggest mistake we can make. Yeah, you are spot on right, I feel the same, I regret a lot more the things I haven’t done, than the things I have done, even if those turned out to be a mistake. Thanks for your great comment!!!
I just have to agree with the toxic friends. I had one before and glad i had the heart of pulling her out of my life. Now i can breath and i have moved on peacefully without her in my life. I actually never want to see her anymore but its a small world after all. I have forgiven and my life is perfectly peaceful.
Good for you!! Yes, toxic or fake friends can give you a lot of sh** and worries. They can destroy eve your life, how many good relationships broke apart due to the ‘performance’ of this kind of friends, seen, heard and had it all.I know how hurtful this can be, but sometimes cutting people out of your life is the only way to find your own peace of mind.A toxic attitude can’t be cured with forgiveness and love!
I definitely agree with you about getting rid of toxic people in your life. Life is so much happier and better when there are no people weighing you down and bringing you more pain than joy. Better to have a few real and good friends than a lot of so-called friends who only cause problems for you.
I agree it is important to learn from mistakes! I have a few regrets, but they mostly involve me listening to other people or being scared instead of doing what I really wanted. So I will try to not do that in the future. On the plus side, at least I have no weird tattoos!
