This is how Chaewon of Le Serrafim encouraged a fan who lost motivation to live on after making a mistake. Her words are full of wisdom and certainly something we can learn from.
Firstly, she showed that she understood what that fan was going through by sharing a quote from Steve Maraboli.
‘We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here now with the power to shape your day and your future.’
Secondly, Chaewon identified and normalised the feeling of making mistakes. She wrote:
“Everyone makes mistakes. We learn by making mistakes. I make countless mistakes.”
Then she encouraged that fan to look forward to something worth living for. In this case, Le Serrafim’s next album.
“But we still need to live. If we want to meet each other, we need to live. Aren’t you curious about our next album as well?! I guarantee it’ll be no joke.”
