Progressive means, “happening or developing gradually or in stages.” We all want to be there. We all want to grow. We all want to develop ourselves & our lives. Among several things which you can improve yourself on, there is one thing we all need to work on. Our mistakes. I am sure everyone used to make mistakes at school. I used to have that pencil which comes with the rubber at one and graphite at the other, I know you have used it.
So, whenever I made a mistake, I would quickly turn my pencil upside down and erase it and would write again. Sounds familiar? I sure it does. Life is no different even today. We make mistakes every day & we feel sorry about that also.

Forgiveness is the virtue of people with disabilities and the jewel of the capable person. Forgive yourself. Learn from your mistakes & move forward.
Once you know this, you will always move forward. I am not saying you will not make mistakes but you will learn from them & probably will not make the same mistake twice. Do share it with your friends and family.
