Swallowing your mistakes

When I know I’ve made a mistake, I often feel like I have a lump in my throat. Does that happen to you too?

There are times when we are just going to have to swallow it and move on.

The situation may or may not call for an apology. Nor do we need to fluster and flap, trying to fix it.

That’s where perfectionists struggle. We won’t rest until we have fixed it.

Sometimes you can’t.

So just swallow. And keep walking. No one said it would be easy but it’s the only thing left to do. And the sooner we do it, the sooner we’ll get somewhere.
