    And I Have To Admit It Quite Often

    How can we learn from our mistakes if we don't own up to them? If I know I'm right, I'll argue until the very end. But if I'm wrong, I'm the first to admit it.

    I Yelled, I Regretted, I Apologized.

    A few days ago, M managed to say just the wrong thing at the worst possible moment.  I was in a bad place in my head.  And I snapped her head off.  Worse, I raised my voice, knowing full well that my surge in temper had very little to do with M.So, when I saw her today, I...

    Why Is It So Hard?

    What is it so hard for people to admit when they're wrong?  I don't think many people like to admit it when they're wrong but surely it's better to say "sorry, I was wrong" than hold onto a belief with dogged determination no matter what.  It's through...

    I am an alcoholic. I feel the thirst

    for it when it's not around for more than 9 hours. An alcoholic should not be in a relationship because even if it's not true, they are told they would choose alcohol over love. Sometimes admitting you are one makes people pass remarks.

    When it happens

    But of course I'm never wrong.  lol. Just a joke but it does come down to taking responsibility for your actions.  And we are supposed to learn from our mistakes.  But it can sometimes be difficult and humbling.
