When you shift and release the pedal it should return to the previous location.
A ratchet action on the pedal to rotate the shifter drum.

Often the shift pedal just needs cleaning and lube at the pedal pivot bolt.
Hop to it and see if it cures the problem.

If you abuse it then you could have other issues.

Sometimes a spring will break(rare) and the ratchet action will not take place.
You can manually lift and return the pedal.
