Is there someone always watching over you?
Telling you how you do something, or avoid doing something. All this to stop you from making mistakes!
Tell them you will never learn
From the mistakes, they’ve made
It doesn’t register when it’s not you
I want to make my own mistakes
So that at the end of the day I can say
That I did try, that I took that risk
Mistakes are when we know how not to do things
No one could do it perfectly the first time
Trial and error teach us how to do things properly
So, kindly I say to them
Please let me take that decision
That will teach me how to do it right!
(I am one of those who are always trying to tell my children how to do things better, how to avoid making mistakes. But a chance remark made me realize how important it is for everyone to learn it their own way)
