- Queen Latifah
About this Quote
In this quote, Queen Latifah is acknowledging that she has actually made errors in her life and has regrets about certain choices she has actually made. However, she chooses to see these regrets as finding out experiences instead of home on them. She recognizes that she is not perfect and makes mistakes just like anyone else. This shows her humbleness and self-awareness, along with her capability to grow and learn from her past actions. It also functions as a reminder that everyone is human and makes mistakes, and it is important to not be too tough on ourselves when we do.
