36. I Have Done Nothing Wrong
A common problem with any person who breathes and exists–our egos really don’t like taking responsibility for doing something wrong. It is a hit to self-esteem if you’re not used to it, especially for more insecure people. It is a show of strength to be able to admit when you are wrong and take responsibility enough to face consequences and improve ourselves.
That’s probably the scariest part about being wrong, the consequences. But it is a part of life to get used to. Doesn’t make it any easier to do, though. It requires conscious effort and self-discipline, but it is rewarding in feeling like a generally more whole and confident person. Being able to confidently admit when you are wrong is shockingly liberating.
