‘I was wrong’ and ‘I’m sorry’ are two of the most powerful phrases in your vocabulary. Admitting your errors and apologising for poor behaviour is not always easy. It involves humility, self-awareness, resilience and strength. But putting your hand up and acknowledging your mistakes goes a long way to building trust in relationships and demonstrating your ability to grow and learn.

You won’t always be right in life and being prepared to admit that is important. It is not a sign of weakness, it’s ok, no one is perfect. But once you have admitted and/or apologised for your mistake, make sure you correct your behaviour and move on rather than dwell on it. You can’t change what happened, only how you respond. Work to be a better person and not have it happen again.
