Admitting faults is a humble manner and good?

We are only human beings that commit mistakes. Sometimes we say, act, do and decide some cases that we did not plan it twice whether it is good or bad to anyone. I happened that I hate that person for some reasons and I want to go away from her. The other friends ask whats the reason behind. I explain to it but I know for me it is nice and right but fo her is not. So to be smooth of our friendship I just admit my fault even tho I have reasons to it. What is your great ideas and opinion with this?

If the fault you are admitting to is real then it is in fact a good attitude. It shows humility and it shows that you want to be accountable for whatever damage you have caused - materially or personally to other people's feelings. However, if you're admitting a fault for the sake of not having to argue about something that you honestly believe isn't right. Then I would think that that is simply trying to avoid inconveniencing yourself. And that, my friend, is not a virtue. It's laziness at trying to make things better. Thanks for the response on my discussion :)

Admitting our fault is a great thing to do. Although it's hard to say I'm sorry but it's necessary to make make peace with everyone. There are some instances that we don't like that particular person but we have no choice but to act the same as if nothing happened. I can tolerate that as long that person would not pester me at all. She or he can do what they want as long that they will leave me alone.

Morning, genius tiger. When I make a mistake, I admit it sincerely and will say sorry to the person involved. I think that it is good as well as humble manner. What's more, it is human that everyone makes mistakes. I don't have any problems for admitting faults or mistakes. I think that it makes the involved all the more respect me for my admitting my faults. Good day, friend.

If I feel that I have done some mistake then I have no problem admitting it. Because we are all human being and we all do mistakes in life. When I do some mistake then I try to learn lesions from that. I think we all should learn from our mistakes then we will not do the same mistake and it will also help us in the course of life. Those who do not learn from their mistakes repeat the same mistakes again and again. I think people always forgive for the first mistake but if someone do the same mistakes again and again then no body will forget him/her.

I think it is very humble and appropriate to admit our mistakes. Nonetheless, we don't always have to wear our hearts on our sleeves for others to trample on. We all make mistakes, true, but if it is a one way street and the other person is not willing to admit their mistakes then I would stop. (My humble opinion, only :)

admitting that you are wrong in something is one of the hardest things to do and it takes someone with a great self esteem to do so. However by admitting that you are wrong you are letting the other person know that you value them, you value their friendship and opinion.
