I don’t know why it is, but for some of us, admitting that we have made a mistake is a very difficult thing to do.  While most of us would like to think that we are humble enough to admit when we are wrong, the reality is that our pride sometimes gets in the way.

In our relationship with God, He asks us to confess our faults to one another and pray for each other so that we may be healed.  I really do believe that when we acknowledge our wrongs that there is a healing that takes place.  No longer do we have to hide behind the veil of perfection.

Are you in a current situation where you know that you have made a mistake or are wrong about something?  Before you allow the conflict to continue by asserting your point of view and explaining how you’re right and someone else is wrong, take a deep breath and look introspectively.  Was there something you could have done differently?  Did you say something the wrong way or do something that you regret?  If so, acknowledge it, first, to yourself and then, if appropriate, acknowledge it to the person you are in conflict with.  There’s something powerful about saying, “I messed that one up.”  It frees you try again and expect more from yourself the next time around.

If we could only learn to admit when we make a mistake, it would help us improve our relationships and become better people too.
