All our mistakes help us grow and improve in some way. Sometimes it's clearer and in other cases, we just gotta think it through. In the end, however, we can always learn or reflect about our mistakes and end up learning something, no matter how insignificant it might seem

Loving someone I shouldn't have. I spent way too long in a terrible relationship, thinking I was in love but feeling sad most of the time.
It damaged me in a lot of ways, but it also showed me what not to do. I know how it feels now when the relationship isn't right, and it's made me more confident to recognize when I've found something better. I'm with someone now who loves me in the right ways, and treats me the way I deserve to be treated.

There are many things in my life that I feel has been a big mistake that I am grateful for and I don’t know where to begin. To start off, is Colby a mistake? Future. I feel as if I am mistaken myself sometimes, by how many friends I have and so forth.

Regino S.
While dating someone, I fell in love with another man. That man is now my husband and the future father of my kids. It was a mistake and I'm not proud of what I deed. But the same mistake led me to where i am now and a I couldn't be happier.

It is the morning of my wedding. After all the photos at the house we gather in the limousine to the church. I stared in front of me to look in my fathers eyes as I tapped my newly painted fingernails on the window. The thump, thump, thump of the road beneath us as we raced down the highway.

I picked a church that I loved not one near my home but not too far. As we rode along I kept praying for courage. The courage to speak my truth.

Dad, I said, is it too late to back out? I don’t think… Yes, he said firmly cutting me off. It’s too late.

So I married a man I didn’t really love. We have 3 amazing kids but are finally divorced.

There isn't a one mistake. All mistakes made shaped who I am and led me on this path to achieve my full potential. I think mistakes are part of the human nature (even the old Romans knew that, as there's the latin saying Errare humanum est – to err is human). The important thing is to accept them as mistakes, to understand what happened, why it was a mistake and how you can avoid it in the future, to learn from them. And as you learn from them, you become grateful for having thought you how to grow.

I downloaded Tinder/ Bumble app because I was just curious and never realized it was a dating app where many people use it for hooking up but I’m glad I still kept it to connect with boys

Heather P.
Taking the low paying job that broke my back literally, requiring surgery to fix and years of rehabilitation…including learning to walk two times on separate occasions. That struggle brought my spouse and I closer and has given me the opportunity to begin the healing process from lifelong abuse.

Chantalle N.
It’s probably to move back to sweden from New York for a guy who swept me away. It was a huge mistake to move back to sweden for him since our relationship with need very quickly, but at least I got to be close to my family again.

I also realized that they need me in the sense of time where we ar right now.

Louise Z.
meeting my toxic friend, she hurt me so much but also taught me so much as well. i have a lot of amazing and awful memories with her, but i’m so glad i met her when i did, i’m very grateful for what she taught me. karma was heavily in play during our friendship as well, but it is no longer time for me to know her, only be grateful for our friendship

Flavie Q.
The mistake for which i'm grateful for is the time I was searching something else & suddenly saw a video of BAKING & i started baking.. the thing now i just love to do when i'm tired or unhappy
If i bake it gives me inner happiness which is unexplainable..🤍✌🏻

Sufia N.
When it was time to join university, I was so confused that which field I wanna opt, because My career depended on it. I was pressurized to go for medical but I wanted to join arts. It was a tough and challenging decision to make as I wanted to convince My Parents and satisfy them. Today I'm a graduated student from IELL and a lot grateful that I chose what I wanted an dI don't regret it. In the first place I wasn't comfortable as My Family wasn't that satisfied, but they became happy by seeing Me happy.

Sabine U.
Why can't you do more of the routine like if I what to pick power night and I have 10 why can't we get more then it will say to buy to get more

Sanaa W.
I allowed myself to be used by fake friends for a long time because I was afraid of being alone and not liked. My “friends” were not there for me when I needed them but I was there for them always. They were not good friends to have and instead of allowing me to grow they actually held me back from being my true self.

Ludgero C.
I chose music as one of my majors in college, in an incredibly taxing program. It was the hardest five years of my life, and for a while I regretted it, even after graduating. Then I discovered my passion and purpose in life, and it turns out having that music degree will be very helpful in graduate school and my future career. I was always proud to have made it through and gotten my degree, but now I can really feel it was worth it.

Julia N.
The biggest mistake I made was telling someone off and saying hurtful stuff.I'm grateful I did that because it released my negative energy from my mind and I hope it can also give the impression that I am a force not to be reckoned with

Dannielle P.
Thinking that I’m not worth it. That I can’t do what I set my mind to do, that nothing I want to achieve and that I have been manifesting will work and it was a big mistake. I didn’t realise what I’ve been working towards subconsciously has got me to where I am today and for doubting that part of myself I am grateful !

Felicia L.
I am grateful for fi di g the worst job ever. The reason being that if I would not of been working there I would not of found my frie d who became my partner in mu new business venture.

Suzane C.
Went working for a bank. And not going to study natural sciences and become an engineer. I learned that "mistakes" are Milestones, and a growing opportilunity. Without them, we can not grow. So is it really a mistake or are we suppose to make them? What if the only mistake is not to make them?

Michelle F.
The biggest mistake I made was to allow fear to stop me from moving forward in my life and then not doing what I need to do.
Now I’m grateful for it as I’ve faced fear in the face told it to leave and move to a new house and town and start my healing journey in moving forward in life.
That’s what I’m grateful for is facing my fears head on and pushing through them no matter what

Brennan U.
Forgiving my self for what has happened in the past and all the wrong decisions I made all the years back .but the mistake that im more grateful for is to keep my children alive

Azade F.
قبول نشدن در امتحان ورودی دانشگاه بزرگترین اشتباهم بوده،اما از خدا سپاس گزارم!چون الان درحال کمک کردن به بهبود روند مطالعه ام است.خدای زیبای من،دوستت دارم

Lauren U.
Giving the silent treatment to my ex boyfriend in desperation for him to change. Talking it out never helped, and I didn’t know what else to do. It ended our relationship and I saw his true colors. I was a wreck, but 6 months later I found my soulmate. We’ve been together for over 2 years and plan to get married one day and spend our life together.

Sunday F.
In high school, I decided to leave science class to social science. I actually felt really bad for doing that even after passing my test but I just couldn't help myself, my fear for blood was really strong.

Asianna S.
The biggest mistake I’ve made that I am grateful for is dating someone who just wasn’t for me. I know this is a common thing most people go through, but going through those hardships with that person has taught me not to accept it from someone else. It has showed me the correct way to be treated, as now I’m treated with kindness and love.

Carl E.
going to that birthday party. That party sparked a friendship that at the time I didn’t realize was toxic. She made me hate myself, but without that experience I wouldn’t be where I am now.

Hanna P.
Staying with my abuser in my last relationship for as long as I did. It was a 5 year relationship filled with verbal, emotional, and specifically physical abuse. Staying in this situation was my mistake but living through it and getting out of it was part what made me who I am today

Shayna A.
The biggest mistake I have made that I am grateful for is following a girlfriend to a new city to be with her against the advice of all of my friends and family and without anything there for myself. It was a two year detour, but I believe the therapy and healing there broke through loads of my generational trauma.

Laura C.
Deixar os outros definirem o que eu sou e deixar me tratarem me e eu tratar me mal por eles não se sentirem bem com eles próprios .
Mas ensinaram me a amar me e a respeitar me e a definir barreiras para não deixar todos passarem e não ter medo de não deixar quem eu não quero e não me sentir culpada com isso

Danesha X.
The biggest mistake I ever made was trusting the wrong person as a friend for 10 years. Over that time I've tacked on trust issues, abandonment issues and self esteem issues (the list goes on). I didn't realize how much of a toll this "friendship" took so much out of me I could even recognize myself anymore.

I'm grateful that I no longer consider them a "friend". For the past few months I've been working on improving my mental health and self image. As time goes by I realize should've severed ties a long time ago but I'm grateful it happened none the less.

Oscar Y.
The biggest mistake I made was to increase my spontaneity with others, I thought that the good I offer to others would return to me again, but I experienced many disappointments and shocks in everyone I loved, and that gave me the strength that I have now

Viridiana Z.
Choosing to take a year between 9th grade and high school, where I went to a 10th grade. In Denmark, the elementary- middle school etc continue consequetively through 0th to 9th grade, and high school is not part of it, and not obligatory. You can choose to go to another school for a year in between, and would the decision be up to me who now went through it, I would absolutely not do it, but I learnt a lot about my self, and I am forever grateful I did it.

Cris T.
lying to a friend (because I thought it would comfort her) but it made her hurt and she left me and I regret it made me realize the importance of honesty

Hannaneh F.
In my country, there is a special kind of high school for studying literature. These schools have an exam to arrive but I forget to attend this exam and its time finished. I was angry about that and I attend to another high school . I find my best friends and I should say they are very nice . sorry for grammatical mistakes I'm not very good at English.

Julie P.
I married the wrong person – my ex-husband and was with him for a total of eleven years. I’m grateful because it’s through the pain of loss and betrayal that I learned how to take care of myself. I was able to do a lot of inner work and recovery from this relationship and family stuff that brought me health and healing that I may never have gotten if I hadn’t married the wrong person. So one bad decision brought me a lot of growth. I am now happily married with three great kids.

Cecilie W.
Don't know how to consider it, but.. Through another person I realized that the guy with whom I was having a relationship (with future perspectives) MAYBE wasn't the one.. Thanks to the "White Nights" I'm here, alone, dealing with lots of inner big things by myself, trying to over come fear, discovering myself. And all of this is happening just because that guy (love of my life) left me without saying a word. All the focus I had towards him, is now comoletely on me. Blooming. And bleeding at the same time, but it's for my growth.

Olivia F.
Taking the HR diploma at BCIT. I hated the material and I regretted it as soon as I took it. I never wanted to be in HR. But looking back, I glad I took the route I did because then I wouldn’t have the stable job that I have to say in product management at Digital

Harmony W.
The biggest mistake I have made is hating myself and wanted to kill myself because I wasn’t loved properly. I grew up in an unhealthy, toxic, and abusive household. Whenever someone would hurt me, I would blame myself as the root of the problem. Thanks to that mistake, I’ve learned to love myself even more. Love yourself.

Nigora F.
I think my biggest mistake that I am grateful is patiently waiting for my promotion at the Chamber of Commerce. I am still getting the fruits of my hard work from that place

Edelbert Z.
Trusting a wrong person, following his advise that In fact were for his benefits. That is a mistake that teaches me how to put myself a priority and follow my guts.

Pedro F.
I make news mistakes everyday, but I am always grateful for them, all of them, they brought me here and help me to be who I am.

Jenica Q.
It's my child. I had her unplanned. I was at the peak of my spotlight when she arrived. The challenges throughout the journey was rough but today, as she is growing, I am more grateful than anyone or anything else in the whole world. Never knew that she came from me. Never knew that I could raise a smart and polite kid.

Anajah E.
It would usually take me about I would say an hour I think! I just have a hard time sleeping so I’ll just turn the tv on and just dose off
