“I was wrong”, that’s something I know I hate saying, and I would imagine a lot of people have trouble saying that. It admits we messed up, it admits we aren’t perfect, and it admits we have struggles to work through.
Furthermore when we tell someone that, it gives them power over us, that they were in the right.
But it is far better when we just admit we were wrong, apologize and move on, striving to be better next time. By doing this first we save ourselves from being defensive, from saying things in anger that we don’t mean, and from fighting with someone we care about.
“I was wrong”, three simple words that we should get more comfortable saying. It doesn’t mean we are weak, it doesn’t mean we are inferior, it means we can admit that we have faults, and areas in our lives that need improvement.
Don’t be afraid to say when you are wrong.
