Own Up Your Mistakes

Perhaps, one of the toughest things to do in life is to say, “I’m sorry, I was wrong.” Most people are extremely reluctant to admit their mistakes for fear of being ridiculed or mocked. Sometimes, your ego is the impeding factor to stop you from owning up your mistake. Your ego is large enough to obscure your sense of fair play and you find yourself unable to even accept the possibility of having erred. It is a rare breed of person who confesses or offers a sincere apology.

It is this inability to express regret that is the root cause of most human strife in our society. Misunderstandings, conflicts, uprisings and wars are the by-products of the actions of unrepentant nations, societies and individuals. Unrepentant and unforgiving nature costs human lives and totally destroys the fabric of societies on the whole.

Expecting forgiveness from others because you believe it is not your fault is tantamount to a potter blaming the wheel for shaping a misshapen pot. Even though the mistake may not be totally your own, you have, in a subtle way, either through your reaction, action or inaction, played your part badly. Taking responsibility or owning up that you were not entirely blameless, will avert major catastrophes that could lead to a potential disastrous situation.

You are so eager to change others though you will not budge from your ways or beliefs about anything. Examine your inner self and look at situations from others’ perspective and weigh the pros and cons before deciding on a course of action. Expand your mindset and radiate happiness to everyone around you
