All the mistakes we make do not make us a good person or a bad person, and it is important to clarify because, in this regard, the remarks are nuanced. If you hurt someone on purpose that’s not an unfortunate mistake, that’s a deliberate action.
Have you ever thought about the value of the lesson you learned from this error? I believe everyone can learn from their mistakes and come back a better person.
Keep in mind that saying simply saying sorry does not make you a better person. One you have to be sincere in your apology or it’s just adding to the hole you dig. Secondly, depending on the mistake, words may not be enough. You have to follow with action.
