The Savvy Quote today talks about how most people would learn from their mistakes if they weren’t busy denying them. I think we live in a world that trains us at a young age to deny, deny, deny. That’s why we see so many adults refusing to own up to their mistakes and take responsibility for their actions. Take for instance the serial adultery. You can catch this person in the very act and they still will shout…”it wasn’t me”. Except for admitting they made a mistake by bringing someone in the middle of their sacred union, they will flip the script and blame everything on the person they cheated on.
As I get older the one thing I have realized is that the mistakes you don’t learn from you will eventuality repeat them. Sometimes just admitting you made a mistake is all that’s needed to make positive changes in your life.
