As human beings we are weak and erring. No one on the face of this earth is perfect. It is natural that we forget, fall into error and make mistakes. This does not mean that we will not be conscious of it. It simply means that we do not do all these mistakes and wrongs purposely, deliberately or intentionally rather we are caught in a moment of weakness, forgetfulness, negligence, irresponsible behavior and the promptings of the devil. Any of the mentioned things can happen and make us do the thing in the undesirable way.
The thing which is now to keep in mind is that we realize that we have done something wrong. It keeps us poking and twitching in our heart to the point that we are unable to get it off our thoughts. This is the first step toward the journey of self analysis and finally self actualization. We have realized that we have done some bad thing. First we recognize it as something bad and secondly we accept that we have done it.
From this step begin the other steps which can lead us to a state where we can feel light and free of the burden of wrongdoing.
After we realize our mistake we feel bad about it. We feel guilty and remorseful. We can have the choice of letting us be in the state and always bear a burden upon us. The other choice being accepting the mistake and consciously seeking to rectify it.
We can see now the nature of our wrong and according make amends. If we have hurt someone verbally or physically we can always ask him or her to forgive us. We can do some good to the same person and try erasing the effect of our misbehavior. In the similar way we can rectify any wrong done by us through admitting and saying that we are sorry about that.
If it is something against our own selves which no one knows and only we know in our hearts about it then we need not make it known to anyone. We can just take sometime to ourselves and think over it. We can ponder over the reasons as to why it happened. Then we can firmly resolve never to repeat the same thing again. Here comes the power of Faith and Prayers. We all know that we are created beings and our Creator is far superior to our humble selves. Our Faith gives us hope of forgiveness from His Vast and Unlimited Mercy.
We just need to have faith in ourselves and not punish ourselves by always brooding over the mistakes and remaining sad and hopeless. On the contrary we should be positive in accepting that we did a mistake and sincerely want to put things into place again. The Faith in the Creator gives us the Hope and Courage to carry on and move on in life howsoever bad we have been but only have sincerely felt the need to cleanse ourselves of all our wrongs and to free ourselves from the burden of guilt and remorse.
The conscious efforts not to repeat the same mistakes again can finally lead to lesser chances of falling deep into the same mistakes. Have Faith. Have Courage. Have Hope and Just Move on in Life with Sincerity and Honesty.
