Is it bad to make mistakes

In this world, everyone may make different kinds of mistakes everyday. If you ask me if it is bad to make a mistake, I think the answer could be YES and NO.

Firstly, I would like to say it is bad to make mistakes if you have made the same one more than three times already. In fact, it has the same meaning as a famous Chinese saying"事不过三" (shi bu guo san). If someone does so, it only means he or she doesn't have contrition and they don't care the mistakes. So, it is very bad.

Secondly, I think it is also good for us to make mistakes if you can take seriously to correct the mistake. Because it will be a good chance for us to see our shortcoming and realize in which part we should improve. It is also for someone complacent to know their true abilities and be modest . So, making mistakes sometimes are helpful for us to be better and better.

In my opinion, making mistakes could be good or bad. But, we should be careful enough to make fewer mistakes in our daily lives.
