Get Over Your Mistakes

Get over your mistakes.

“I’ve ‘karma’ anxiety, doc! My past extra-marital affair still haunts me and my present relationship,” Rico shared during our Zoom session.

It’s a mistake Rico made 10 years ago! It continues to affect him and his daily functioning. He still beats himself up with it.

At a recent 2022 Oscars awards night, Wil Smith slapped Chris Rock on stage.

Several minutes after he won the Best Actor Award, Wil publicly apologized.

“Denzel [Washington] said to me a few minutes ago, ‘At your highest moment, be careful. That’s when the devil comes for you,'” Wil Smith revealed.

“I am embarrassed and my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be … I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong,” Smith added.

Chris Rock also apologized in a public statement:

“As a comedian it can be difficult to understand which lines are to be crossed and which ones aren’t. Last night I crossed a line that I shouldn’t have and paid the enormous price of my reputation as a renown comedian. Comedy is never about poking fun at or making lite of people with major ordeals happening in their lives. Comedy is about using real life circumstances to create laughter and bring light to an otherwise dark world. With that said, I sincerely apologize to my friends Jada Pinkett-Smith, Will Smith, and the rest of the Smith family for the disrespect and disregard I displayed which was unfortunately broadcast for the world to see. I hope that, with time, forgiveness can come of this situation and we can all be better, more considerate people in the end.” – Chris Rock

Everyone makes mistakes. It’s our “common humanity.” We are all works in progress.

Mistakes are lessons.

Sincerely apologizing and learning from it transform us to lightbearing human beings.

Get over your mistakes so you can move on.

“Some situations need our empathy, not our outrage.” – Mikki Kendall, Time Magazine
