People do not often stop and ask themselves how they can improve so that their relationships with other people can also be ameliorated. However, in a world in which people are already distancing themselves from one another, whether premeditated or not, people should be assessing their mistakes more often so that they can become better people. When that happens, the world itself can improve immensely.

The first step to becoming a better person is to ask yourself how you interact with others. Are you surprisingly gloomy? Do you get along well with the people you know, or even with strangers? Are you quick to trust others? Are you happy at this exact moment in your life? Do you think you can try to make yourself happier?

Now, we live in a world that is full of mistrust. But, it is a mistake to think that everyone is untrustworthy. So, when you meet others, try not to think of them with a negative perspective. You should think the best about people, but always be cautious.

Mistakes are often spontaneous. We do not think that we are going to make a mistake until afterwards, when we see its consequences. But, we can't think that mistakes are totally bad for us, since they are useful for teaching us lessons that we are sometimes too stubborn to really learn.

The most mistakes that we make are usually centered around our relationships with one another, whether with our family or lovers or friends. But, tensions do not arise from one person only. In fact, most tensions usually occur because two or more people are butting heads with each other. That means that you are not the only person who has to assess your errors; the people with whom you interact must do the same.

Becoming a better person requires more than just your hard work. You must also work with the people around you. If you surround yourself with people who aggravate you, find out the source of your aggravation and try to fix it, or at the very least try to avoid it.

Other ways in which we make mistakes involves the way we think about ourselves. If we have low self-esteem, chances are we have a greater risk of depression, obesity, and anti-sociability. These are ways in which we can degrade the quality of our own well-being. If we want to make ourselves better people, we have to change these mindsets and acknowledge our self worth. If we don't, then we shall be stuck thinking that our mistakes wholly define us, and that is no way to live.
