It is easy to feel frustrated and miserable when you make mistakes. But you can always learn from your mistakes and failures. If you use them as learning experiences, you can view them as positive. Although you would rather not have made those mistakes, you can now view them as stepping stones to growth.
Today, think of one time in your life where you came out better in the end after having made a mistake. Then appreciate the growth you experienced.
