Fifty (57 Ways to Beat Loneliness & Depression)
Freely make mistakes
I used to hate driving to places I have never been before. Even when Mr. Tom-Tom is directing me and telling me how to get where I wanted to go safely, I would still get so tense and worry about missing my way or my car getting stuck somewhere without a way of escape.
Until one day I was going somewhere and the worst thing happened! I got lost. I made the wrong turn, and ignored Mr. Tom-Tom multiple times and did not get back to my house until I was tired and I had wasted $13 in gas and 45 minutes of my time. But you know what happened, I realized that it didn’t kill me! This whole time I was worried about getting lost, but the experience of getting lost was not as bad as I imagined it to be…and even better I learned that this particular road was not the one to take next time 🙂

So the next time you are tempted to be afraid of making a mistake. Purposely make the mistake, and you will realize there was nothing to be feared, but much to be gained
Remember life is meant to be lived boldly!
