Essay 4

I do not feel terrible about my mistakes, though I grieve the pain they have sometimes caused others. Our lives are “experiments with truth” and in an experiement negative results are at least as important as successes. I have no idea how I would have learned the truth about myself and calling without the mistakes I have made. (Adapted from Parker Palmer, Let Your Life Speak).

Assignment:Is it necessary to make mistakes, even when doing so has negative consequences for other people?
