I wonder if I am the only one that has been waiting for that new phone release that would actually have an ‘undo’ button. I didn’t say ‘back’ button, I said ‘undo’ button. Yes, I know I sound grumpy but grumpy is what you get when you finished typing a text explaining the direction to your house, and your baby sister distracts you at which point you mistakenly press a key and gbam, it’s just a ‘t’ staring back at you on your screen. I need the friggin’ undo button!!! *sighs*. “Calm down, it’s not that serious” is what you might wish to tell me now. Big deal.
Oh! But God bless the ones that made the ‘undo’ button available on the computer. Do you know how many times for whatever reason my whole 4-paged report will just disappear, don’t ask me how but…thanks to the ‘undo’ button that saved the day!
Yes, this post is about expressing my admiration of undo buttons. Or not. If only we can have that for the actions we did or the words we spoke. There are many days I have wanted to undo certain decisions I’d made – words and actions alike. But that’s just not possible. On the other hand, much like the limitations of our smart phones, I think there is such a thing as a ‘back’ button in life. It might not be as good, but it is next best thing.
The point is, when you realize that you have made a bad decision especially when it involves somebody else, never be too proud or ashamed to apologize sincerely. It might not necessarily fix the problem, but it sure is somewhat like a ‘back’ button to revisit what was done wrongly and ‘patch it up’. The same logic would work for the idea of revisiting past ‘mistakes’ as they were, to learn lessons as such that it doesn’t repeat itself in the future.
You cannot travel back in time to fix your mistakes, but you can learn from them and forgive yourself for not knowing better
On a concluding note…The iPhone 9 had better have an ‘undo’ button, the S9… something! Okay, I’m done.
