Don't You Hate Being Wrong?
I will admit when I'm wrong. And I'm not one of those people who is above it. But, if I don't feel like I'm wrong, I'm not gonna make an apology for it or try to make you think that you're right.
The worst feeling in the world is feeling like a fool. You get this numbness all over that makes you want to crawl in a hole and and bury your face in the layers of muck and mud, never to have to face the world again- especially not the person that made you feel so foolish!
And why as humans do we hate being wrong so much? It's not like we think we're perfect and not susceptible to failure and flaws. Why are the words, "I was wrong" so hard to spit out.
Whether we feel foolish for a choice we made, something we said, a relationship gone wrong or a slight error, being wrong has that little nibble of shame that can turn into a flesh eating disease.
Perhaps, with therapy, we'll one day be able to admit our errors without turning red in the face.
