The older I get, the more I realize people do not take accountability of their own words and actions. I’ve seen people say/do something, and then act as if they developed amnesia when the situation is addressed. The main question is: Why can’t people admit their faults and actually be about everything they say or do? You’ll never be able to right your wrongs, if you can’t keep it real with yourself. There should be no reason why anyone is so prideful, that they cannot simply utter the words “I’m sorry”, “I was wrong”, or “I apologize”. Put it like this .. if you’re wrong, than you’re wrong. There are no if’s, and’s or but’s about it. It is okay to be wrong because no one actually has the answer or justification on everything. Also, being wrong sometimes is nothing but a life lesson that you’re learning. Life is about learning from your mistakes, so you do not repeat it again in the future.
“More people would learn from their own mistakes if they weren’t so busy denying them.”
Stop crying wolf, and pointing the finger at people for your problems. Yes, it does take two to tango so that means everyone involved is accountable for their own actions. Sadly, we cannot reverse time in order to fix the mistakes we’ve made throughout life. Yet, what we can do, is apologize. Apologies go a very long way, because it shows growth within the person. When a person apologizes for their actions, it shows that they’re taking full responsibility, accepting the consequences and admitting to their faults. It takes a very mature and “real” person to do this. Age doesn’t determine maturity either, so don’t think because someone is your age or older that they’ll admit their wrongs. Some people rather sweep it underneath the rug and act as nothing has ever happened.
