Yep! Don't get discouraged about issues and goofs. These things happen day one of programming and then 14 years later (I speak from experience).
You're going to commit bad stuff to the repo, and push up wonky stuff to the server, just smile and carry on!
Damn right. It's not about never making mistakes, it's all about how you respond and get the problem fixed with as little collateral damage as possible. Then you can laugh about it later (and repeat ad nauseum for the rest of your tech career!)
