Yes Mistakes Were Made But Not By Me
Carol Tavris Quote
The blame game just got karma; Yes mistakes were made but not by me is a quote that is just inviting fate to crush the justification of selfish indecision.
This Fritz Ahlefeldt image just about sums up this Carol Tavris line from the book of the same name.
The justification of bad decisions and foolish beliefs is a worldwide phenomenon that appears inbuilt to the human psyche.
A seemingly small decision opens a path for you to go and although confident in the beginning it may not be the right path for your desired outcome.
When this happens people have a tendency to work harder at justifying their earlier decision and look for a positive reason to continue.
Humans are simple creatures complicated by beliefs, we are brought up to beware and avoid evil people with bad intentions but more often than not a personal downfall is caused by good intentions and what is deemed a good person or idea.
Recognising you have made a mistake can be a difficult and humbling situation to face but the lessons learned can outweigh the mistake once you learn the ability to admit your mistakes and face up to them, after all who wants to be seen to repeat the same mistake, it is a good life lesson.
