Why is it so hard to say you're wrong?

Because it often involves saying, "I'm sorry" which is even harder. Sometimes though I know I'm absolutely wrong in what I've said or done I still can't admit to my husband that I was the one to blame. Somebody told me a tip that next time just say, "Whoops," and see what happens. It replaces the "I'm wrong and I'm sorry.

Sometimes it is so hard to accept the truth and the fact that we are wrong.But on my part I always take the challenge of accepting every wrong and defeats in my life with my whole heart.With this I will be able to ask forgiveness to the person I offended. Most of all I am able to learned those mistakes and makes me a better person everyday.

For me there are three reasons why it's hard to say sorry: 1. It's not your fault : It's difficult to say "I'm sorry" where you haven't done anything wrong. 2. You can't say that it's your fault: Maybe you're confused of the things you've done, if it's really your fault or not? 3. You can't admit that it's your fault: Maybe this will be the case where a person have to live up to his/her pride or having the fear to admit his/her mistakes for some reasons. This may leads to more lying and committing more faults.

I always tell my husband I'm sorry. I think it is important to take responsibility for my words and actions. He also says sorry to me when he knows he was wrong. An I'm sorry and a hug can set everything right again.
