  • We might learn from them, but that doesn't make them any more fun to experience. Most people spend a lot of energy avoiding humiliating themselves.

  • If we were going to drink poison and say it was harmful, knowing it would in fact harm us in some way, you definatly
    wouldn't do it over and over. , but real life mistakes aren't usually that obvious and they even look innocent until we see it was not so innocent and later hurts us.

  • Because some lessons suck to learn, but I've always lived that way.

  • Oh honey I make so many mistakes. I learn from them but not quick enough. Sometimes I make the same mistake over and over. I swear! I am not afraid of mistakes.
