well a lot people has this problem to them right are wrong they do not make a mistake.are you one of these people that knows you have done wrong and cannot admit it.do you know that a person is waiting on that parking spot and yet you pull in the parking place. say things mean behind your neighbors back you know this wrong.do you start rumor you know is not true about a person. it seems you not hurting any one, but really are you? what could happen when you say and do mean things to people.it could cost them their job you, could cause people to be talking and saying mean thing about this person.fights break out because of gossiping sometimes lives are taken when you say are do mean thing to a person they are not there to defend themself.so much can happen admitting you are wrong is not that bad it shows what sort person you are to admit you are wrong.

No, I don't have any problem admitting that I am in the wrong. I agree with what you have said about gossiping, etc. I was a victim of someone else's wicked ways. She actually backstabbed and humiliated me and directly caused me to lose my job. She is a Christian. It's such a shame that there are many wicked Christians around and they behave worse off than people of other faiths. Sigh. Sorry, I know I have strayed from the topic. Anyway, let's just hope that more people are willing to admit their mistakes.

It's so strange...these 2 days when I tried to post my responses, it seemed that the responses didn't go through and so I tried to repost my responses. In the end, the posts actually appeared! Anyway, I agree that gossip can kill. Sad...

admitting you are wrong is not easy. it comes with respect and pride. i do admire people who accept they are wrong and say sorry. i guess i say sorry but sometimes i cant. there are circumstances i can not admit that i am wrong specially when i know that i am right (here it goes pride again har har har). but i am not like the people you are pointing out at your post. those kind of people are ruthless. those people does not just need to say sorry they sure need to make sure they will not be rude to other people.

i wonder why its so hard to say iam sorry or iam wrong you mention about pride.pride can be a very bad thing.its good to have some measure of pride but careful pride can get in the way.classic example if you need help please ask don,t let your pride get in the way.thank you for sharing.

when it comes to help, yes i dont let pride get in the way... specially when the life of any of my love ones is on the line. true that sorry, excuse me and please are courtesy words that a lot of people have the hard time to say it. i wish every one can exercise this kind of words... the world will be a better place. have a great weekend keep safe.

I have absolutely no problem admitting my mistakes and the word 'sorry' comes naturally to me. It is better that way than to go on defending and creating ugly scenes.

I strongly believe that "To err is human" which means everyone makes mistakes and therefore I do not think it is a big deal admitting them.

No, I don't have any problem with that. Yes, you are right. If someone says and does mean things to other people, it could cost them their jobs. I was a victim of someone else's wicked ways. She actually said and did mean things to me, which literally cost me my job. Anyway, let's just hope that more people will readily admit their mistakes.

Personally for me, it depends on the situation. There are many times that I have felt I was wrong even though I wish I would have said or done something different even if it was for the Best. Then there are times where people were acting as if I was wrong where I did not see it. I guess for me when I know I am wrong I will take time to apologize and then hope for the Best from there.

I really don't have much problems in admitting that I'm wrong. I always tend to analyze the other persons arguments and I have the good sense to know when I wrong and when I'm not. But, I do know some persons that are so stubborn that they never admit that they are wrong, they have to be always right, for me, that's so boring that is kind impossible to live with a person like that.

In my case, I am a person who usually admits that I am wrong. I guesse I have been so consciencious sometimes. Even though when I know its not really my fault, but I have the tendency to carry all the weight of the mistake. Maybe i should learn sometimes to not to admit my mistake all the time(hehe).

Admitting that we are wrong is a form of courage. I don't find it difficult saying sorry and admitting that I have done a bad thing, especially if it caused someone's feeling getting hurt. I think there is nothing wrong with admitting because by doing so, we are also setting ourselves free of the guilt.

No, I never have any problem admitting when I am wrong. But sadly there are many people around me who I see have a big problem with that. They would not only not admit to it when they are wrong but would actually try to justify it by blaming you or the other persons and situation with their annoying arguments. On my part, I try not to harm anyone and and when it's clearly my fault I would admit it without any unnecessary arguments!

There are times that it is really difficult to admit that we are wrong. Just like the song says, sorry seems to be the hardest word. But some times, if we let go of our pride and admit that we are wrong, we feel much better than admitting we are right though we know that we are wrong. Admitting you are wrong is a sign of strength.

I laways admit when I am wrong or have done wrong. I ask for forgiveness or I take the punishment or fine when I have done wrong. I always try to make up for all my wrongdoings to show, that I can do good things, too.

[b][i]Dear Annjilena, First of all, thanks for posting a sensitive discussion. I would like to start responding to this with a valuable quote : "Every body makes mistakes that is why pencil have erasers" :) This is true indeed for all of us. Humans are intended to do mistakes sometimes, this is unavoidable. And the beauty lies in how far we accept our mistakes. I am a person who will admit the mistakes if I had made any, am not boasting but I feel that it is better when you yourself accept the mistakes before you getting an index finger in front of you. It will be really embarrassing when others point your mistakes at you. Hence what is advisable is not to make mistakes but to commit it when you make one. When you start this without seeing the ego, prestige, it will be appreciated by others. Even according to the law, when a person admits the mistake(theft,robbery,murder etc), the punishment will be diluted a bit. So MAKE MISTAKES &&& ADMIT YOUR MISTAKES Happy Mylotting [/i] [/b]

you are so right you hit the nail on the head.now when you think about it even in a court of law to make a case they need the person to admit their wrong whatever it maybe.the point is as you said we all make mistakes.

there are many people who tell them and they were doing wrong, they still can not accept it. This means that these people hardly think not infallible for number one. I do understand is that once I've made a mistake in his well say that it is not. because we are all humans and no sinless people but it is a matter of thinking and way of education. nice day!
