‘Ooh yes, that was a really bad mistake, I mean a really, really bad mistake’
‘You know what your problem is, you take an idea and you run with it, then you are so focussed on that idea that there is just no stopping you. If you did things more in moderation you wouldn’t have been in such a mess’
At school, failure is always looked upon as a bad thing. If you fail a test or get a bad grade it’s hardly a cause for celebration right? You are constantly being tested for this or that, and if you don’t pass, or if you make mistakes then there are always negative connotations, but why? Surely we learn from getting things wrong?
I’ve learnt huge amounts about health and how a body works. I’m nowhere close to knowing everything about our inner workings but I’m a lot closer than I was before! I can make better decisions about my health and things that will benefit me/harm me. I live more intuitively by listening to my body, whereas previously that would never have occurred to me!
As for my credibility, well, I’m not sure that was ever in place!! I try not to comment now unless someone specifically asks, or I may say something once, so people do have different options, but then it is up to them as to whether they research that idea further. Certainly people should research things for themselves, or listen to their own body more, rather than just taking other people’s advice (however well-meaning that advice is!).
