Admit your mistake. Don't look for false excuses.Updated on October 15, 2020, Seytoo
We all make mistakes, everywhere, at work, but also at home. Some are easy to admit, others much less. However, admitting your mistakes must be done with dignity. But how?
Decide who to admit your mistake to. No need to bring the whole family together if it concerns only one person. Did your mistake slightly or seriously affect the person?
Evaluate the consequences of your mistake on the person. How will she react? Prepare to face the person concerned. This bad time, we will have to pass through it. Remember that the longer you wait, the greater the consequences.
Now think about how to fix your mistake. To feel better, you have to be sure to be forgiven. As the expression says, “Confessed, a fault is half-forgiven.”
Admit your mistake. Don't look for false excuses. There is nothing worse for someone than realizing that you are lying and trying to walk away. People will always admit that you can make a mistake, but not a lie.
Accept the consequences of your action in advance. You may not be forgiven right away. Be patient with the person.
Repeat in your head how you are going to approach the subject. Anticipate the person's reaction. Go forward. Admitting your mistakes is hard, but it is showing maturity. You will feel better no matter what happens next.
