Forgive yourself

Live Learn Love

So, I made a mistake.

And that’s simultaneously okay and not okay.

I hate making mistakes,

The shame of whatever it is this time.

Dread washes over my body but never washes away in the shower

I could steam up every mirror in the house and never feel cleaner

So, I made a mistake.

But, I won’t make it again.

I’ve learned my lesson, and now I begin again.

Mistakes are unpleasant events, but play your cards right and you won’t repeat them.

Maybe I can be like a Phoenix without the flames-

Aside from the redness of my hot skin.

So, I made mistakes.

But I learned from them.

The sun raises tomorrow,

And so will I.
