The importance of admitting your mistakes
In this episode of S*%! People Say, we talk about acknowledging and apologizing for your mistakes. In theory, everyone knows that it’s important to admit your mistakes. But how much are we doing this in practice?
Admitting your mistakes helps you better process what happened and not beat yourself. It also helps other people understand your intentions or assign positive intentions to your actions, and in the case where you’re an authority figure (boss, parent), shows that you’re human.
In the episode, I share examples from my life and how I’ve learned to own up to my mistakes. After listening, I hope you’ll find the opportunity to admit to a mistake—and that you’ll feel better about it after.
