so I made a mistake and now im having really bad anxiety Any tips?



Feb 19, 2020
I don't want to explain what mistake I made. I am quite embarrassed and ashamed of it. I am having mini panic attacks. I haven't made a mistake this grave in such a long time. I can't get over what I have done...this relates to work. I really hurt someone I got along with. How can I stop feeling so anxious and forgive myself for what I have done? I have terrible "self-healing " tendencies. I feel like this was the cherry on top of all the crappy things going on in my life. Any advice would be appreciated.

We all make mistakes, even massive ones we dont talk about. Its part of being human. The best you can do is learn from it and one day share your experience with someone else who needs guidance in the same area.

I've found that when you make a genuine mistake the best thing you can do is own it. And if you've hurt people in the process the best thing you can do is apologise to those you've hurt.
It's not easy, it'll be uncomfortable, but if you want that horrible feeling to go away it's really the only way to make it happen.
Good luck :)

Apologize and you’ll probably feel a little better.
