We make mistakes every single day. It’s a part of a life. It’s a part of being human. And many times we learn a lot from the mistakes we make. But why then, are we so afraid to make mistakes in our day to day lives. Yes there are different consequences from making mistakes that can harm us in different ways. But I think there’s a simple reason we’re scared of making mistakes.
I think we’re scared to be judged as not good. Everything in society tells us that the best do not make mistakes. When we watch celebrities and look at top performing athletes they don’t lose or make mistakes. When we look through social media or watch movies everything is absolutely perfect. Our whole lives we’re conditioned to be perfect and never screw up. So we feel bad and unworthy when we do make mistakes. I believe we fear mistakes small and big because society has trained us to behave that way.
