A few years ago, I was such a different person. One of the hardest things for me to do – was to admit my mistakes and say “sorry”. It made me feel extremely embarrassed and uncomfortable. Even when I had a sense of realization, I found it very difficult to actually say that.
Due to this, a lot of my fights, disagreements, and arguments would drag all along – sometimes for months. I just couldn’t give up my ego/ pride to admit I was wrong. It led to several cold wars and silent battles. I would just be too guilty to say the words “I made a mistake, I realize that. I am sorry. Will you please forgive me? What can I do it make it better?” I simply would run away from the situation or ignore it altogether.
Then, over the years – as I grew spiritually, emotionally and as a human; I made friends with my fears. Instead of avoiding and ignoring, I learned to take ownership of my mistakes and actions and not just that – anytime I had a realization that I did something wrong/ could have done things better or differently, I would admit it and ask for forgiveness. I started to value friendships and relationships much more than the sense of ego/ pride.
This one change in my attitude has transformed my life so much, for the better. I embraced humility. I became a more thoughtful person. I could empathize deeply and take ownership of my life.
At times, realization comes in retrospect. But, I make sure that as soon as I realize that what I did was not right, I am quick to admit, seek forgiveness and take lessons for change. I wear my heart on my sleeves and I am humble in my actions. I do not regret this transition. In fact, this is something I am very happy about. I am able to confess, confide, be vulnerable, be human. Afterall, it is human to err. I’m also quick to forgive, and forget. Sometimes without apologies. I don’t prolong fights, arguments or disagreements. If I feel I’ve done wrong, I do my best to make up for it. I make an effort. I try to make people in my life feel love. Feel special
