As human beings, it is but natural for us to make mistakes many times in our lives. The problem we have sometimes is our inability to admit our mistakes. This only makes our lives heavier and harder to deal with because our mistakes will keep on repeating themselves until we are no longer able to stand up from our pitfalls. It is important for us to acknowledge and learn from our mistakes and misadventures in life. Yes, we fall down many times along the way but it is not the number of falls we commit but the way we stand up after each fall. Addiction is one of those mistakes and pitfalls some people go through. If you're one of them, don't be afraid to admit that you made a mistake because it is the first step in seeking out sobriety. If you're someone who knows someone who is addicted, don't judge them and keep on counting their faults, instead encourage them to change and be with them along the way. Mistakes are lessons in life that we shouldn't be afraid of. If we fall into them during our journey in life, pick yourself up and keep on moving with added wisdom in you.
