Made a mistake at work!

I made a mistake at work. No one got hurt or anything but the part that I built failed. When a friend from work told me about it I was gutted. I struggle in my early 20s with making mistakes at my other job because I was inexperience. People are saying to not worry about it and that I probably won’t get in trouble for it. I take every mistake I make to heart. I worry alot and get paranoid it will happen again. My stomach is in a knot and I’m afraid people will think I’m a horrible mechanic. Can anyone give me some advice?

I struggle with this a lot myself. No one is my bigger critic than me. Take a breath and try to give it a fair assessment. Think of it as if someone else made it. How would you react? Use that as a type of high road to take. I hope this helps!

Thanks I appreciate it. I’m just really hard on myself. I feel like it’s the end of the world and people are gonna think different of me.
