The strength to say “I’m sorry, I made a mistake.”


One thing we all have in common is that we’re human. And human beings all make mistakes. I’m sure you’ve crossed paths with at least one person in your life who—for whatever reason—was unwilling or unable to apologize. How did that make you feel? I dare say that if it was someone you cared about, you left the situation feeling less than positive.

This was a lesson my step-daughter taught me. It wasn’t easy because, after all, I was the adult. But you know what? Once I learned how to admit when I was wrong, our relationship improved almost instantly.

So how about it? Next time, ask yourself this question: Is it possible I’m wrong about this?
