    Forgive yourself for the wrong choices

    that you've made in the past. They are not evidence of who you are, they are evidence of who you were.

    Am I the only one who doesn't like using the

    wrong words or using an ok word but wanting a different word that describes it better? I will go out of my way to make sure they use the right words, I will look up "word that describes x, y, and z" and look at it, then find a word that complements (or compliments?) the rest of...

    When I am in the wrong,

    I never hesitate to admit it. The sooner the better. If it is something I've done, I tell it straight. I'm sorry. I was clumsy and knocked over your coffee maker and broke it. Please buy another and I'll pay for it. If it is a discussion and I say something I am sure is right...

    Something I wrote in my diary few weeks ago,

    and it always crosses my mind: “I don’t fear much things but I hate to admit that being hurt is one of my fears, because if I did get hurt it means I’ve allowed the wrong person into my life and trusted them and trusting people is not easy for me… people say it’s a...

    I Lost True Love.

    The only one who ever really understood me, loved me and accepted me. Like best friends. He taught me how to read music in high school, but he was the biggest thug. A rough exterior but the sweetest heart. A simple man. The best kind of man... Our breakup took two. It wasn't...

    When I'M Right

    I'm not afraid to admit I'm wrong. But when I know I'm right I will fight for it. I'm not always right. It's impossible for someone to always be right about everything.

    One time when I was younger I poured detergent

    all over my bathroom. I poured it over the counter, in the sink, in the tub, on the floor.. You name it. But when my mother came to question me about it I told her it wasn't me. Because I lied both me and my sister got into a lot of trouble. I wish I could take the stupidity...

    Through years of experience in dealing with

    people, I have learned that everyone loves a trustworthy and a blunt person. No one likes a person who is afraid to admit his mistakes. I used to be that person. The sooner you admit the mistakes, the lesser the chance of being exaggerated about your wrong doings.

    If It So Happens To Be

    Admitting your mistake gives you chance to make

    things right or make up for the wrongs you did or improve on it... so why be afraid? ;)

    This Isn't Always True.

    I have an anxiety disorder. With some people I am afraid to admit I'm wrong. With them it tends to be a bad thing to do and the consequences of it just aren't worth it. But in general - I love admitting I'm wrong. It means I'm growing, learning, and becoming more aware. Often I...

    For the most part, I am able to recognize when I am in the wrong and I will admit it. And I'm not just talking about when it's obvious I am wrong and really can't deny it. Throughout my life I have admitted when I was wrong about something even when I could have denied it or...
