Mistakes are an inescapable part of human life.

we make them right from the moment we're born.

But not every mistake is foolish.


There are thousands of different types of mistakes

every one of them with different consequences

Some of them have no impact on your life

others change it forever

haunting you for the rest of your days


They can come from anywhere

anyone can make them

Even the most trustworthy people

can do something that's so awful

that it changes your view of them permanently



their mistakes can be forgiven


they can't


you just have to live on

in the knowledge

that that person wasn't

who you thought they were.


those mistakes can't be forgiven

So they can't be forgotten either.



even the most beautiful electric blue eyes

can't convince you to change your mind

I guess it's inevitable that everyone makes mistakes.

But it's not inevitable that they must be forgiven.

You just have to move on.
