The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none.
Good evening all, Cid here with your Motivational Monday! It’s been a very long day for me… sorry for not getting this up earlier. Getting things moving on the right track for self-improvement, and overall hopefully improvement of the entire family dynamic here, really takes a lot out of me sometimes.
Today’s quote is directly related to this, and really hits home for me especially. It means, to me, that the biggest mistake you can really make is to believe that you don’t make mistakes; the worst thing you can do wrong is to convince yourself that you’re never wrong. Everyone makes mistakes, everyone occasionally does something wrong or something they’ll regret. The important part, and what will make us all stronger in the long run, is to recognize those failures and mistakes and learn from them, turn them around into a stepping stone to becoming a better person.
My biggest fault personally is my temper. For the longest time, I blamed others for my anger; I would blame anyone else who was at all involved and try to make myself sound more like the victim, when I was just as wrong as they were, if not more so. My temper has got me in a lot of trouble, almost cost me everything I care about, but now I’m willing to admit that I am the only one who can control my temper. Even if that just means controlling my actions and finding the best way to get away from the bad situation that is fueling my anger, it’s still my job to resist the urge to lash out in anger, and I’ve been doing that for a while now. It’s difficult a lot of the time, but I have kept it under control!
Anyway… yeah. Take this Motivational Monday as a lesson, like all others are; this one, just remember that we all have problems, and we all need to recognize those problems to start fixing them.
