Everyone, in every moment, is doing the best they can. When we make mistakes, hurt others, or harm ourselves, it is because we can think of no other, better option in that moment.
But once the moment passes, we gain perspective and wisdom, which can cause us to view our past choices with regret, shame, or hopelessness.
