Words Of Wisdom... Something to Ponder On

When I started using pen in my primary school, if i make a mistake, I would try hard to erase it. Sometimes I would use chalk, but later it would reappear. So I began to use saliva, it worked only to leave holes in my book. 

My teachers then used to beat me for being so dirty. But all I tried to do was cover my errors. One day, a kind heart teacher who loved me so much called me aside.

"Olamide, anytime you make a mistake, just cross it and move on. Trying to erase it would only damage your book... But, I don't want people to see my mistake and laugh at me", I protested... Trying to erase it will make more people know about your mess, and the stigma is for life"

Have you made a mistake? Cross it and move on and stop trying to correct it. Don't try to create more irredeemable errors by trying within your power to erase it.
