I would like to think I am good at admitting my mistakes.
Nobody is perfect, and we all make mistakes (although don’t tell my husband that) He will always tell me when I have done something wrong, but then I will tell him too. We shouldn’t always agree with our significant other. If we do, then any marriage would be boring.
I will argue I haven’t made that mistake, but once I realise I am in the wrong, I will admit to it. I will try and rectify my mistake if I can. If that isn’t possible I will apologise to the person.
My husband always thought it was a mistake buying our new home, four years ago, but I am a glass half full sort of person. I see where we can improve, rather than when there is fault. Now, I’m not so sure. The last year has seen some pretty expensive repairs. The last one, our ceiling. I agree with my husband that the person who sold us the house definitely did some patching up, rather than getting a builder involved.
Nobody is right all of the time, so at some point we will make mistakes. I tend to be harder on myself for my own mistakes. I will easily forgive others if they make a mistake. I don’t really hold any grudges.
The one thing I want to teach my granddaughter is that when she makes a mistake, make it right. Apologise, and move on. If you can make up for it, then do so.
