Yes, I've made mistakes. Life didn't come with instructions.

   "Don't place your mistakes on your head, their weight may crush you. Instead, place them under your feet and use them as a platform to view your horizons." In other words, "Mistakes are precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way."
   Hello my little angels! Did you think I forgot that part? I thought I should start this post with a couple of nice quotes, because I AM a quote addict and I love finding quotes that define my exact mood or thought. They somehow tell me that I'm not alone, people have been there, done that, survived it and so can I.
   So, Mistakes. Everyone made, makes and will make more of them. Why did I choose this topic? Not just because this is something I do everyday Even without noticing. But also because I have an essay to write, and it is about a mistake I have made that taught me a valuable lesson. I started looking in my mistakes' listS. But because I've made many, learned a lot of lessons, and I am incredibly forgetful, I couldn't think of the "right" mistake to write about. So, I thought that I always get inspired while writing on this blog. And here I am talking about mistakes.
   I think the bigger our mistakes are the more memorable the lessons we get from them are as well. And when it comes to that, I would say my most memorable lesson is: To not be naive anymore and to be careful from people. Not everybody is as honest with me as I am with them. And not everybody is my friend. So, yeah! my mistake was blindly trusting people.
   I'm jumping right into it because I'm sleepy and I'm waiting for my hair dye to dry up to see if it looks as good as it does in my expectations. (I won't be mentioning that in my essay)
  As an only child, I've always envied siblings who share everything together, good or bad. And those kids envied me even more for not having to share the good stuff with anyone. But they didn't realize that with every good, comes a bad.. And the worst side of being an only child, was being alone. That is why I was very social, I loved making friends, at any price. They could come to my home, play with all my toys, occasionally steal a couple, just so I wouldn't be alone anymore. And as I grew up, instead of toys, other stuff came. Like making others' homework, being nice to everyone even the ones I shouldn't be to..etc. Bottom point, I tried pleasing everybody so I'd win them as friends.
   Year by year, someone betrays me, stabs me in the back, and I just kept thinking "not everybody's that bad. I just befriended the wrong person.." But yet again, it looked like I kept choosing the "wrong" friends. It took a really terrible friend or friendship to realize that people aren't as good as I believed. The world isn't as perfect as I wanted it to be. At that point, I just stopped blindly trusting people, I stopped trying to make them like me. This is me, they have to take me as I am or leave me be. And as a wise person once said "I have reached a point in life where I feel it is no longer necessary to try and empress anyone. If they like me the way I am, good, and if they don't, it's their loss."
   In the end,  I guess it wasn't as much of a mistake as it was innocence. But I did learn something from it, and I got out of it better, stronger and smarter.

   That's all for now! Please let me know what you think of it. And of course, tell me about a mistake that you've made which taught you a valuable lesson. That might help me a lot to improve my essay.
Until next time,
Take care!
Bye Byez~


  1. This post is really good, you could use it as the essay itself! And ohh what are you dyeing your hair? Darker? Lighter?
    I think I did the same mistake,when I was 12..but real good friends warned me about people that wanted no good for me.

  2. Thanks, Ines!
    I dyed the tips of it into a pinkish red.
    I'm glad that now I'm surrounded by better people.
