Do you think that accepting your mistakes will make you feel any less? Even when you know you're wrong, why is it so hard to admit it?
If you were to ask what is the hardest task in the world, you might think of some muscular feat, some acrobatic challenge, some chore to be done on the battlefield or the playing field. Actually, however, there is nothing which we find more arduous than saying, 'I was wrong' .
I will admit, it can be scary when you come face to face with our reality that we are in a place we don't want to be in anymore.
So many times we wish we could've lived our life without making any wrong turns. In reality, a path like that doesn't exist.
We fall. We get lost. We make mistakes.
We get up and live and that is what life is all about.
Don't wait for something big to occur. Start where you are, with what you have, and that will always lead you into something great.
Admitting your mistakes won't make you look weak. One must be big enough to admit his mistakes and instead of arguing or blaming others, he should be strong enough to correct them. Putting the blame of your mistakes on others won't make you look perfect or someone who is never wrong.
Let me tell you, a perfect person is someone who accepts his mistakes and learns from them. It's totally normal to make mistakes, humans make mistakes and that is more than okay.
A friend of mine once told me that the best teacher in life is experience and there is so much truth to that. It's really hard to face failure, it hurts to see ourselves failing. But then in the end it depends totally on us whether we're going to give up or make the struggle worth it for ourselves as well as the people watching us.
You can't be perfect, don't try to be perfect, no one is perfect. The real deal is when you make a mistake try to understand where you went wrong and don't repeat it again instead you learn from it. Understand that you make mistakes. You hurt people. Apologize. That's growth, understanding that there are things you need to work on. Instead of faking perfection try to improve yourself.
Lastly, I would like to conclude all of this through an inspirational quote by Roy T. Bennett
"It takes guts and humility to admit mistakes. Admitting we're wrong is courage, not weakness." and I know you have guts.
