Admitting you are Wrong


Admit it!


We all mess up and there is no doubt that it happens. Some of us go over and admit to whomever they owe it to. Others on the other hand just don’t admit it.  The question is which one are you? Do you admit when you did something wrong? Or do you hide behind the mess and avoid it?

If you answered you would rather admit when you mess up then hide it, congrats to you. Admitting you were wrong is pretty rare. Most of you may not have admitted this and that’s an issue.


In life we are going to mess up and mess up big, that is the long and short of it. You can try to hide your mistakes, past, etc, but one day it will find you and blow up in your face. My theory has always been just admit you are wrong now and handle the punishment instead of later when it’s worse. Sure you may get away with it for years, but one day the past will rise and haunt you.

Currently, I am reading the Wheel of Time series and one key lesson in the book is to follow Ji’e’toh.  To break it down, Ji equals honor and toh equals the obligation.  When you break your Ji you need to honor it with facing your toh. In essence, you do the crime, you do the time.

Many people don’t follow this code of honor, instead they run from mistake they have done at their jobs, family, friends, etc. It’s time to own them and meet your toh. Why run away from a bad thing that you have done? Instead clear your mind and admit you did the deed. Once you pay the price you can move on.

In a sense, it’s also kind of like closer. You gain closer when you reach your balance and admit you were wrong. It is a very hard thing to do and I understand that. This needs to end today if you are running, hiding, and eating yourself up with guilt. Find the person you were wrong to and admit it. State you are sorry and asking how to make it right. It will be hard, but you can do it!

To admit you were wrong is a giant step into the Savage World; that you are no longer living in, but beginning to own!!
