It feels so good to be right, right?

And so bad when you fumble and fuck things up.

I know. It really sucks when you’re wrong.

But hey, committing mistakes is not a sign of failure.

It’s a beautiful sign that you’re actually trying to improve yourself as you grow more.

However, we cannot discount the fact that at times, it’s quite hard to admit that we’re wrong.

Know that this does not only come from your ego, or you wanting to get desired results faster.

It may also stem from wanting to prove yourself to others, and even to yourself.

And of course, there’s the fear of judgment that goes with it.

Regardless of your reasons, know that you have a choice on how to deal with your mistakes.

Allow me to share with you the 5 things you can do when you’re wrong:

1.) Accept with full humility

Fact: You can’t be right all the time. You don’t even have to be. So swallow your pride and come from a space of humility and openness and accept that you’re at fault. Remember that you can only resolve issues that you acknowledge and recognizing your mistakes is the first step in doing so. Admitting your mistakes does not make you less of a person; it actually makes you more human.

2.) Stop beating yourself up

You can’t make things right by hurting yourself continuously. No amount of harsh words or harmful actions towards yourself can undo what’s been done. So instead of beating yourself up, empower yourself to rise above the challenges. Remember to forgive yourself in the process.

3.) Take note of the lessons

Mistakes allow us to learn which in turn help us grow. Reflect on the situation and ask yourself what is it teaching you? Allow those lessons to become anchors in your next journey as you become your own #bestmeever.

4.) Come up with a solution under your control or influence

Make the most of the opportunity to make up for your mistake by thinking of ways you can improve the situation or redeem yourself. Focus only on what you can control and just do your best whatever solutions you may come up with.

5.) Ask for help

You don’t have to deal with your mistakes by yourself. Seek support or mentorship from people whom you think can help you fully as you try to start all over again on a clean slate. There will always be someone out there who will be willing to lend a helping hand, only if you’re humble enough to ask.

So yeah guys, cheer up.

Things will be better soon.
