I Deserve To Make Mistakes (Je Mérite De Faire Des Erreurs)

At Je Mérite, I Deserve, we believe that every step of your journey-- including the missteps-- is an essential part of your growth and self-discovery.

As we continue to celebrate Mental Health Awareness Month, we want to remind you of something fundamental:

You deserve to make mistakes.

Mistakes are often viewed negatively, but they are an integral part of learning and personal development.

Embracing your mistakes with compassion and understanding can lead to greater self-awareness, resilience, and ultimately, a more fulfilling life.


This week's affirmation is…

I Deserve To Make Mistakes

Je Mérite Faire Des Erreurs


At Je Mérite, I Deserve, we are here to support you every step of the way.

Our luxurious self-care accoutrements are designed to help you relax, unwind, and embrace your journey with confidence and grace.

Remember, you are deserving of love, compassion, and the freedom to make mistakes.

Celebrate your journey, and treat yourself with the kindness and care you deserve.

“Mistakes are a fact of life. It is the response to error that counts.”

Nikki Giovanni

We'll start this week again with a meditation

(16 mins)

Self Compassion for Mistakes Meditation

from Reynelda Jones

We often make mistakes. But some of us are harder on ourselves than others.

Use this meditation to assist you in exploring your ability to show love, compassion, and forgiveness to yourself.

By no means will this video be the be-all-end-all for your healing.

Next, a blog post, to assist you in releasing yourself from the trappings of past mistakes…

How to Forgive Yourself After a Mistake? 5 Tools to Use to Forgive Yourself After a Mistake

by Embracing You Therapy

Getting stuck on a mistake can take a toll on your mental health, because fixating on the mistake may create negative cycles.


Next, a podcast conversation with Jeremy Godwin...


from Let’s Talk About Mental Health

For many of us, we can spend years carrying around hurt, pain and anger towards ourselves over things that we did or did not doin the past; and while being able to reflect on the past objectively so that we can learn from it is a massive part of good mental health, you'll notice that I said 'objectively' — guilt does not tend to be objective; mainly because it usually involves clinging onto negative past emotions rather than learning how to let go and forgive yourself in order to move forward.

So, that's what Jeremy explored during this podcast.

Next, a powerful book by Nina Purewal & Kate Petriw

Let That Sh*t Go: Find Peace of Mind and Happiness in Your Everyday


In Let That Sh*t Go, Kate Petriw and Nina Purewal share the wisdom they've gained through decades of practicing and teaching others to find peace of mind no matter how busy they are.

Learn to put your life in perspective, take each day one step at a time and steal moments of calm amid the chaos. And remember: it's not worth holding onto that sh*t.


Over the past week, I've watched some really great films about motherhood. Mothers who've made mistakes… humans who've made mistakes.

There are two recommendations this week...


“A Thousand and One” is a fascinating portrait of the maternal, feminine instinct caught in an unforgiving world. Katie Walsh is Tribune News Service film critic.

After unapologetic and fiercely loyal Inez kidnaps her son Terry from the foster care system, mother and son set out to reclaim their sense of home, identity, and stability, in a rapidly changing New York City.

Starring Teyana Taylor, Aaron Kingsley Adetola, & Aven Courtney

“Equal parts Rocky, The Wrestler and Million Dollar Baby” “...a triumph!”

A disgraced MMA fighter finds redemption in the cage and the courage to face her demons when the son she had given up as an infant unexpectedly re-enters her life.

Starring Halle Berry, Adan Canto, & Sheila Atim



Have a great week!


I deserve love, friendship, and laughter, I deserve peace, grace, and rest

Not because of beauty, not because of intelligence, nor because I work hard

Not because of riches nor privilege nor stature

I deserve it because I exist

I deserve and so do you

Tamara Charese
