I Am Not Ashamed To Admit When I Am Wrong

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 640 People

    In Fact

    The best thing about being able to admit when you're wrong is that it sometimes throws people off and pleasantly surprises them at the same time. I was able to get several miles per hour knocked off of a speeding ticket one time because i told the cop i was wrong and was making...

    Robert

    I had been having an affair with Robert from my Universite for two years, and for the August holiday last year I went to Canet again to be in the same location as he was with his family. I guess you may think it creepy, I had a room in a small hotel not far from where he and his...

    And I Have Been Wrong....a Lot

    I am not ashamed to be human. I might wish I wouldn't have done it, but I will admit it. I am getting better though. I have had so many insecurities in the past that I would think stupidly. Little trivial things would bother me. Now I focus on what's important in my life. I don't...

    I only speak fair and simple, if I speak the truth then so does the other truths.

    Learning How

         It took me a lot of "growing up" to accept my own faults and mistakes in life and thought. Now I will be the first in line to accept my due in my errors. However I have also become a firm believer in, " If you do not want the truth, then don't ask" theory. In my old age...

    Why Should I Be

    I am not ashamed to admit when I am wrong because I see no reason to be ashamed. If I am wrong about something, then I am wrong. I either correct myself or apologize.I have family members that will never admit when they are wrong. They will continue to argue the point even when...

    Even Though

    I hate being wrong.. and believe me, I HATE being wrong, I will be the first to admit when I have done/stated something that was wrong, I will admit it.  That is something my mother taught me at a young age is to always admit when you've done wrong/lied, someone will...

    First To Admit.

    If I am wrong, I will certainly accept that. BUT I will never let you try to make me feel wrong for my opinions/beliefs.  Didn't anyone ever teach you the definition of the word "opinion?"  I don't judge you about your lifestyle choice, and I'll be...

    Why Be Ashamed?

    Everyone makes mistakes, everyone is wrong sometimes. There is nothing to be ashamed of.

    You Live, You Breath, You'll Screw Up

    admit it and get on with your life, making a mistake, or being wrong is like a right of passage for being alive.  If you do nothing, participate in nothing, and make no changes in life or in others around you, then you stand a chance of being the person who is never wrong...
