On August 17, 1998, former President of the United States, Bill Clinton admitted to the American public that he had had an affair with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.

Consequently, Monica Lewinsky’s image was destroyed and she became a topic of shame and mockery. This caused her to go lay low for a decade.

At her Ted Talk in March 2015, Lewinsky discusses life after the Monicagate event and the upsurge and effects of cyberbullying in online communication.

The lesson here is to rise after we fall.

Making mistakes is not the problem when you rise from from it and use the insights from your mistakes to your advantage.
