The harsh reality is that not everything happens for a reason. Sometimes, we make the wrong decisions and are asked to live with them for the rest of our lives.

J.K Rowling once said that, “Humans have a knack for choosing precisely the things that are worst for them.”

Think about it. Isn’t is true? Don’t we all have something we regret or some decisions we wish we could alter? The truth is, we do.

Although, how do we even differentiate wrong from right? How are we supposed to know that something that feels so right could be so wrong? There is no secret formula. You have to trust your intuition and you have have to forgive it if its wrong.

We all make mistakes. Its okay. Don’t be afraid to hold out for more because too many people in this world just “settle” because of the fear of messing things up or wanting more than they think they deserve. However, we should never accept coal if what we’re looking out for is a diamond. What if you make a few mistakes while reaching your diamond? It shouldn’t stop you because you pick yourself and you try again. You must allow yourself to grow in all the places people thought you never could.

You know what the trick is? Believe in yourself and forgive yourself. Its human tendency to make mistakes. We all screw up. Its okay. We need to accept them and move on, take new chances, make more mistakes and smile through it because that’s just how life is.
