On making silly mistakes

Most people fear doing silly things.

I once read something in the lines of:

  • If you see someone in an awkward situation, join that person’s action. It will make both of you feel better.

There’s another quote, in French, which says that even if you try to throw away the natural things, they’ll come back in force:

“chassez le naturel, il revient au galop”

Another quote:

“There is freedom waiting for you,
On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly?” ― Erin Hanson

It might look silly to try & do silly things. But most of the experiments, the test, the tries, the curiosities – these are silly.

Why would you be curious? Why would you try a new way of doing things, if you know you could fail? And so on.

My suggestion? Try, be curious, test, be silly & awkward, at times.

Read, fight for the truth.

At the end of the day, it’s better to try & fail, than not to try at all.

The aim, of course, is not to be silly, or constantly do a silly thing.

But by allowing yourself to fail, you might have greater success.

Be better than yesterday – sure, but if this means that you only go on the proven path, there’s no room for improvement. Leave some room to grow.

The sacrifice is worth taking, even if it comes with pain.

Should stupidity hurt? (Amazon.com: Stupid Should Hurt Shirt Funny Sarcastic Smart Gift: Clothing)  I’m 100% not in favor of this. Perhaps even because, in one way or another, everybody’s stupid in one area.

To look for the relaxed & safe area, the smart, the never falling, the solution is, in my opinion, the surest way of being silly. Try not to be silly and you become the silliest.
