After listening for a while I asked if he had learned from this and if he would handle things differently in the future. The answer was a resounding “yes”.
Before, I could say anything the person went on to say thanks for listening and that he has grown from this. I was about to say the same thing. The reality is that we all make mistakes. We are human. If we learn and evolve that is what is important. We can not live carrying our past mistakes with us daily. What we can do is grow from the experiences and be a better future version of ourselves.
