I was wrong....



I am never wrong. You’re wrong for even suggesting that I might be remotely wrong.  No, I think you better admit that you are wrong.  Who likes to admit that?  Heck, not me! That was my attitude for much of my life. If there was ever an error in judgement it was always someone else’s fault.  I never accepted responsibility for my actions and the cycle simply repeated itself, like a dog chasing its tail.   

About a year ago I started looking myself in the mirror and recounting the many arguments as well as bad choices I made in my life.  If I’m honest and truthful with you, I took the easy way out and blamed everyone else, except myself.  As I recounted the many painful memories it turns out that a majority of them were cause by non-other than me. No one forced me down a certain path. I was not held at gun point to make a certain choice.  I made a decision and it was the wrong one.  I’m not singling out a specific circumstance but in general.  Sometimes I am wrong, truth is we all are at times.  From our reactions to our responses there are times we say the wrong words that are laced with anger and hate.  In such cases, I have had to face the fire, swallow my pride, and come clean. Without such acknowledgements there can be no growth. 

It is OK to admit this, I think when you can see the error in your judgement, you can take action to correct it.  The sooner you see your mistake, the sooner you can work to repair and better yourself.  Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that you should admit wrongdoing when truthfully there was no error on your behalf.  In the cases that you are, come clean and move forward.  Better yourself, become the better man you are destined to be.
