  • This is totally dependent on the mistake made. I would say that you try to fix it the best you can if it's "fixable". If it is not fixable, then you should try to move on with your life and draw a line with yourself saying you will never make this mistake again. Furthermore, it is never a good idea to go back to the way things were if it was a mistake to begin with.

  • I think to find redemption, you need to really look at your life and ask yourself why you did what you did and get some answers from your soul. If you can't find relief, maybe you find help through counseling. You eventually have to forgive yourself or else you get stuck and can't move on. But forgiveness of yourself is the key.

  • Of course there is no way to fix the biggest mistakes in life. That's what makes them to biggest.
