It is ok to be Wrong

There was a typo on this site. Several posts back. My fault. And interestingly, I’ve been working on this next life tip: it is ok to be wrong. Oh the irony!

 

The fact is, it is ok to be wrong. No one is perfect. We are all human. We all make mistakes. The most important part of being wrong is making it right. Say “I’m sorry.” Don’t try to hide it. Don’t try to cover it up. Just admit it, say you are sorry, and move on. There’s nothing more frustrating than dealing with someone who can’t admit fault . . . and there’s nothing more refreshing than someone who will admit they are wrong and apologize.

 

“Most of our faults are more pardonable than the means we use to conceal them. “~François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, Maxims, 1665
