We are conditioned to believe we must be punished when we make a mistake.
When we instead should have been taught that when we are wrong or make a mistake,
we should be corrected and guided in love.
Punishment is what you get when you are wrong, and that causes fear.
You experience that lump in your throat or stomach because you fear what will happen to you.
We don’t fear making mistakes when we are guided and corrected in love, compassion, and understanding.
We see it as an opportunity to learn,
and when you learn from your mistakes, you grow from your mistakes.
