According to fellow classmate, Lilia, society programs us to reject mistakes and despise them whether it be your mistakes or others. But this shouldn't be the norm, we should instead embrace making a mistakes and learning from them.
I simply agree with this statement. We don't like making mistakes because it is a sign of failure. We don't want to become a failure and other people will begin to look down upon you once you become a failure in their eyes. But being perfect is impossible. If that is true, why expect it?
Making mistakes are good, you know what not to do the second time around. Mistakes teach you that life isn't always perfect like you expect it to be, mistakes keep people humble in their lifetime. Sometimes when you make mistakes you do feel like you're failing but its all apart of the way life goes, nothing is ever perfect.
Gicel says that mistakes are good and that it teaches you a life lesson.
I agree with her, failure is the greatest teacher in life. It allows us to evaluate our choices and actions in life. Through failure we establish resiliency, giving us a chance to make a right decision over time. We lost our autonomy as we seek for validation from others, allowing the society to judge us while contradicting ourselves for the fear of making "a mistake" for the point of whatever the society would think. As an individual, we should practice our freedom to make decision, a freedom to fail without judgement because no one is born perfect.
Helen, Lilia, and Aurora have great responses. If we learn from our mistakes why are we so afraid to make mistakes? Helen had three reasons. Helen said exploring the unknown, being ridiculed by others, and fear of being labeled as a failure. Some of Lilia's responses were society and culture. Aurora mentioned self-esteem. One of Aurora's reasoning, resonated with me. She said we value other's opinions than our own opinion. However, they all agreed, it is okay to mistakes.
I have to say, I agree with my classmates. I do believe it's okay to make mistakes. Mistakes are incredibly valuable as long as you learn from them. I would like to share one of my favorites quotes. “ we all make mistake, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistake, you are here now with the power to shape your day and your future.” Steve Maraboli.
We live in a world where we care about what others think and we care more about other peoples opinion than ours, like my classmate said. Making mistakes isn't bad, instead making mistakes helps you learn and next time you do something there won't be mistakes. We shouldn't care what people say it's okay to make mistakes were all humans and we were not born to be perfect everyone is different in their own way.
Ashly, I totally agree with you. My personal opinion are the following. I think there are two type of decision makers. The first are internal decision makers. These are people who self analyze every step, every choice and every possible consequence. These decision makers do not feel the need to talk it thru with others. And then we have the internal decision makers. These type of people always pursue the opinions of others. Almost asking people for approval. They simply can't move forward with validation from others. You're correct, we should not care what others think when making our mistakes.
I agree with Ashly. We live in a society where we’re too afraid to even try new things because of the fear of making a mistake. From when we were younger to now we all grew up with the fear of making a mistake and being called out for it. We try our best to avoid mistakes but truth is our lives are filled with mistakes, it’s up to us to choose whether you want to please others or if you rather learn from those mistakes and do better.
According to my classmates, people are afraid to make mistakes, society curses the people who trying to do something different. And that doesn’t help when people is more likely to care about what others think of them rather than caring about self improvement. And I do agree with my classmates, making mistakes is critical to self improvement. No body is born perfect, making mistakes is natural.
The speakers of this journal say that mistakes are feared because they make us out to be incompetent. That we should not fear them but learn from them to better ourselves. They also mention that mistakes are a fact of life. And should be expected no matter what.
I agree that mistakes are to be expected. But what is to be feared is not the mistake itself but the consequences. If there are no real reactions then it's nothing to worry about. However, if the consequences were to be catastrophic. Well you better be prepared for the worst and hope for the best.
We all make mistakes, mistakes are very important because it’s one important way we learn, which is something we shouldn’t be afraid of. Even though we know this very important fact we still fear making mistakes because we worry about what people will think of us. Because people always remember the bad. The bad always sticks with us forever, in our minds constantly reminding us of what we did wrong and we try to show others that we are no longer or will no longer make that mistake again. Causing us to believe that others only see the mistakes we make and not the progress we make from that mistake.
Making mistakes is a part of learning, we shouldn't be afraid of making them its how we learn. one of my classmates stated that there is 2 lessons why we are afraid of failing because, 1 not knowing the out come what happens after we failed. second, being labeled as a failure. thats 2 reasons on why i am sacred to fail. We have to speak up to our kids growing up and tell them its okay to make mistakes.
As someone who has made many mistakes in the past and still continue to do so, I believe that the reason why we still fear the idea of committing mistakes is because we don't want to acknowledge that we may be wrong. Although by making these mistakes we can grow and benefit from it, it is still a challenge about dealing with the cause. We also become afraid about what others will say and how they will perceive you in the outcome.
I agree with my classmates we learn from our mistakes throughout life. Without them we will never understand whats right and wrong, and not knowing the out come of what happens after we have failed. We all make mistakes in life and mistakes are good because we are learning and we shouldn't be afraid or scared to make one because at the end of the day we are all here to learn and get back up from our failures. At the end of the day we are not perfect.
We as people feel that making a mistake is something that should not be done. I believe that people in society try to be so perfect, that making a mistake seems like the end of the world. In reality, without mistakes we would not learn valuable lessons. A mistake can teach you right from wrong. As a society we are afraid to make mistakes because to most people, a mistake means failure. No one wants to fail at life or at a task that they are doing and that is why we do not like to make mistakes.
I agree with your statement. I think most of us do try to avoid failure because it feels a lot like rejection. It’s as if we’re not good enough, which often leaves us questioning ourselves and our abilities. Failure is another way of learning, trying again, and doing better next time. We need to learn to replace the idea of mistakes being seen as failure and see mistakes as learning opportunities.
According to my fellow classmates they said we are afraid of making mistakes because of how we value other peoples opinions more than our own. Another classmate stated that mistakes are terrifying but if we should be terrified of anything is not making the mistakes one reason we are afraid is because we are exploring new territory.
In my opinion i believe we are afraid of making mistakes because we do not want to look wrong we want to seem smart and knowledgeable in what we are talking or learning about. As humans we need mistakes to learn to not make them again or to understand material better mistakes in our past shape us into the people we are today thats why making mistakes is important.
All the girls that presented said almost the same thing about how people are afraid to make mistakes. But that our mistakes should be taken as learning opportunities. If you do something new and get it right the first time you aren't gonna do anything different, you'll keep doing whatever it was you did right so you get stuck. Your mistakes give you a chance to try different things and learn new ways of doing others. We live in a society that expects perfection but even trying to strive to that there will be failures you'd have to accept.
According to my classmates, they say people are afraid of making mistake because of the feeling of humiliation. And when you make a mistake it influences other people to think that you have no ability and intelligence. And it doesn't help much when people value other opinions more than their own opinion. But making mistakes isn't bad, it's pretty normal and common.
I agree with my classmates, because even though mistakes are a crucial part of our learning we don't like making them because it is a sign of failure. And we are afraid of being judged by our family and friends when we make a mistake. But making a mistake is like a reminder to us that nobody is perfect everybody makes mistakes.
During the presentation my classmates told us that many people are afraid to make mistakes because of the humiliation or because of they will feel like people wont trust them as much. I believe that many are just afraid to make mistakes because they will let themselves down, they wont feel good about themselves. They feel as if they cant do it anymore because they will just keep failing and not be able to succeed.
Everyone makes mistakes and everyone learns from them, but I believe that we’re afraid to make them because it makes us look foolish and makes us feel horrible, but maybe that’s just it. It is those feelings that make us want to learn from them so we can improve on what we did last time and we don’t makes the same mistakes last time, this way we don’t look foolish and feel horrible. Then there are certain mistakes that we have made in our life that will just with us for a long time, those mistakes tend to affect our mind in a very different way. That is why some people won’t even try to do what they did before and try to make it right, they’re afraid of messing up just as bad as they did the first time.
The answer all three presenters seemed to settle on was societal judgement. According to their findings--despite mistakes being completely natural--we've reached a point in our society where only perfection is acceptable. Although it's highly unrealistic, it hold true for many of us. We're afraid of making mistakes because we don't want to be called out on it, to be ridiculed and called a failure. This fear of losing face in front of others can cause lasting anxiety and further emphasize the idea that other people's opinions mean more than our own. And honestly speaking, I agree with all these points the speakers made.
It's common knowledge that mistakes are a part of life, but no one ever wants to confront that fact. To make mistakes (especially in front of others) means leaving your safe zone and letting yourself out there for other people to see and judge you. That itself is a huge act that is frightening for a reason. No matter how much we may deny it, other people's opinions on us plays a huge role on how we see ourself. Receiving a negative response from our peers based on the mistakes we make hugely affects our self image which is why most of us actively avoid these mistakes. It all comes down to fear. Fear of severing bonds with others.
I agree with what my fellow classmates have to say about why are we afraid to make mistakes because of my own personal experience. I have held myself back many times because I did not want to been seen as a failure. There has been times I stayed quite and not said a word because I was afraid i would be wrong and make a mistake. I have never cared about what people have to say about me or about my personality, but when it comes to me making mistakes it is a whole different story. Our mistakes are our teachers in life without them we will never learn anything. A mistake I learned from was with who I hang out. When I was around 16 years old, i would kick it whit an older crowd that were "my homies". Once cops pulled up to where we where at with their guns out pointing on us and one of the officer told me personally if I made a move or tried to run away, his was going to shot me. I have learned a lot from the mistakes i have made in the past and will continue learning from them. Mistakes tend to make us better as people in the long run.
People are afraid to make mistakes because it makes us look dumb. It makes us look dumb in front of other people because maybe your doing something that they have seen someone else do. So they are comparing you and the other person which really isn't fair because we are all different and we all do things in a different way. But that's the way society is now a days. No one wants to look dumb or look like a failure that's why we are afraid of making mistakes.
As humans we make mistakes all the time, But just because we make mistakes doesn't mean it is the end of the world. Here on this planet no one is perfect or even near that word. So to make mistakes means it is only natural, But many people are actually afraid to make these mistakes. Many people are afraid because many think that if they fail they fail forever and many don't realize you can always get back up and do it again. A perfect example of this was when I was in High School and thought failing language arts was going to make me fail and I wouldn't get my credits. But this mistake made me realize just because you fail once does not mean it is over instead I realized from this fail you can always pick yourself back up and do it again because mistakes are normal and everyone makes them. In conclusion we all make mistakes and we are not all perfect.
I feel like as imperfect humans we are bound to make mistakes from time to time. Instead of fearing mistakes we can learn from our mistakes, once this occurs its not a failure anymore its a win because we can gain that knowledge of what not to do next time and what steps to do in the future to get our desired outcome. It's important that we not dwell on our past mistakes but use it as a lesson and as a teacher because when we fail forward there is no failure only success, we can't let mistakes hold us back rather use them as a catalyst to propel us forward. dwelling on the past mistakes gets us nowhere only drags us backward, so we can use mistakes to help us get to where we want to be in the future.
