10 BENEFITS OF ADMITTING YOUR MISTAKES.
For many, it’s pure ego and selfishness. Some would rather loose plausibility than to lose face. Never being wrong gives them power and moral superiority or at least the illusion of it.
In dealing with people have made me realized that some care more about their selves than their spouse, children, family members, Country and even God. I have seen atrocities committed by people but they will never admit it, rather, they will justify their actions and. Appear right (In their own eyes) than to publicly admit they were wrong. There are people who have made up their minds way before anything ever happens that they can “never” appear wrong. Only if they know the so much benefits in admitting their mistakes.
Here are 10 benefitting ways of admitting your mistakes.
1-IT MAKES YOU HUMBLE.
Saying sorry is simply a way of accepting the fact that you are not perfect. It will prevent you from becoming arrogant and will go a long way in building a strong character of you.
2-FREES YOU FROM GUILT
If you do not admit your mistakes, you will always feel that there is something inside that is killing you slowly. It’s nothing but the feeling of guilt. Being aware of the fact that you are wrong and not admitting it makes you weak, restless and unstable. It even makes it difficult for you to face the world.
3-IT REVEALS YOUR COURAGE
Admitting a mistake and saying sorry is easier said than done. It takes a lot of courage to come out and face the fact. Knowing the reaction of the other person is unpredictable; make you cross your mind to face the consequences. It takes a lot of courage, guts and humility to accept that you are wrong.
4-IT SHOWS YOUR RESPECT FOR THE OTHER PERSON.
When you say “sorry” to someone you have wronged, it shows you care for the person in question. It also shows respect for the person enough to own up to something not minding the consequence. This could be a strong foundation for a great relationship.
5-IT EARNS YOU RESPECT.
Taking responsibility of your action not only shows that you respect the other person, it also makes the other person to respect you in return. You get to earn genuine love and admiration when the other person realizes how courageous it was for you to have said sorry.
6-IT HELPS YOU MOVE ON.
The moment you admit that you made a mistake and have set your mind free from guilt, only then you can detach yourself from the past and give your best to the task ahead. If you leave issues unresolved, you may not be able to concentrate on the present and will lose focus on what life has to offer.
7-IT GIVES YOU A CLEAR CONSCIENCE.
When you admit you are wrong, something changes in you. It feels like some weights have been lifted off your shoulders. This is a sign of a clear conscience and you can confidently move on with life.
8-IT HELPS YOU SAVE A RELATIONSHIP.
Sometimes, all you need to save that valued relationship is just to admit that you made a mistake. It could be a family member or a friend. Just come out clean and let them know you are aware of your flaws. This simple, though difficult action, can go a long way in making sure your relationship doesn’t die prematurely.
9-IT ENCOURAGES OTHERS.
If you can not say “I was wrong”, you may never get the chance to say “You were right”. If you want followers who feel good about themselves and are doing their best, then you must seize every chance to encourage them by admitting your mistakes whenever the need arises.
10-IT MAKES YOU WISER AND MORE RESPONSIBLE.
It takes wisdom to take responsibility of a wrong doing, not minding the outcome.
Admitting a mistake can be the most challenging thing to do, however it’s an important part of growing up that can not be ignored.
