I am in the middle of reading chapter two of Jailbreaking the Goddess by Lasara Firefox Allen and I came across something she wrote that struck me. I am placing it here for now, so I can expand upon it at a later time.
"This level of examination we must adhere to; think a word or phrase through before you use it. And when you get it wrong (and we all get it wrong), change it".
This can be true for many things, not just words we use, but things we say, our actions, etc.
When you make a mistake, own it, and grow from it.
