4. Pay No Attention to Anyone's Ill-Mannered β€œI Told You so”

Isn't that a grating phrase? People say β€œI told you so” in myriad ways, especially when you don't do something they expect of you and it turns out they were right. Don't worry about it.

Ignore the words, ignore that often insufferable β€œI told you so” attitude, and ignore the subtle implication that there's something wrong with making mistakes. Don't fulfill someone's expectations just because you're worried about the risk of someone being smug. To hell with that, too. You never learn if you don't make mistakes. Sometimes you learn more from them so don't let anyone take a learning opportunity away from you. The more you know, right?
