mistakes happen

we all make mistakes – we know that.  we might say or do something in the spur of the moment that we could regret later.  we might have made the wrong decision when a friend asked us to do something – and you feel like you didn’t come through for that friend – you let them down by the choice you made.  but at the moment your gut told you to do what you did – you went with instinct – so in effect you were not wrong – but in the process you let someone down.  from that point the only thing you can do is tell your friend that you didn’t mean to let them down – you just went with your gut and maybe you made a mistake.  you have to move on and let the chips fall where they may.  if it is a true friend, then all will be good. if not, then that is the way it goes because if you were to do it all over again, you would rely on your gut and make the same decision.  this is life and mistakes happen – all we can do it accept what happened – try to repair any problems that came from it – and move on.  do not dwell – this was supposed to happen and you are meant to move on.  you are who you are and you can only try to make the right choice in the future – but when you make that choice, you will always make the choice that is in your favor – it is human nature – you can’t go against your instinct when making decisions because if you do – you will not be you anymore – you will be what others want you to be – and in the end we are alone in this world and we have to stick up for ourselves and what we believe is the right thing to do.
