We are not born omniscient.
So it is inevitable that we will make mistakes and fall short of the ideal.
Therefore forgiveness is essential.
Without forgiveness there can be no progress.
Jesus said, "'Your sins are forgiven.'" Mark 2:9 (NRSV)
In his parables the king is always writing off debts.
So don't be afraid to make a mistake.
You will be forgiven.
And you might just learn something.
