Some people learn from mistakes and don't repeat them,
Others try to block the memories and just delete them
But I keep them as a reminder they not killing me,
And I thank God for teaching me humility
- Mistakes, Immortal Technique.
It's not my favourite quote but I like it. I used to dwell on things. I allowed myself to be consumed by regret. It was a big problem for me. I just couldn't figure out how to let things go and move on with my life.
But I'm better at learning from my mistakes now and I try not to dwell on the little things any more. This lyric reminds me of just how important that is.
Other people do not determine the way I feel. I am responsible for my own emotions.
