Food for Thought #4

For some people, why is it so difficult to admit that they are wrong? In many instances it is important to admit that you’re wrong otherwise more damage will be done, but only saying you are wrong will not work, there needs to be a different way.

  1. That’s true
    People can’t accept the fault
    Because it hurts there ego

    • Yeah, the ego has caused a crisis in the personal life of most people and also a crisis in society and the world as a whole. But if I’m only blaming ego for the cause of my action then somehow I’m still not taking complete responsibility.

      • well said
        true , this only happens when person has a wrong identity and lives in illuson

        • It happens because our thoughts are conditioned on how to think, how to judge, how to live our lifes and who we are. Once you free yourself from these conditioned thoughts, things become much real and clear.

        • definitely
          we need to break the classical conditioning and move towards self actualization

        • Yes, this is what I think.

  2. this one question has actually shaped my life a lot different that what it could have been 🙂

  3. On a personal level, I find it difficult to admit my mistakes because I’m afraid of the response that naturally comes right after.
    When I offend someone, for instance, and I say I’m sorry, will that be the end of it? Or will it be some sort of Pandora’s Box where the other person unleashes all his/her frustrations about you all at once? Or will it be just dead silence? How do I then respond to any of that?

    The challenge might be simple for some, but for an unsociable introvert such as myself, I find the scenario too taxing or stressful to my person that I’d rather not talk or converse at all. Less talk, less mistake.

    • There are 2 things: first, you really did something wrong or second, you value your relation with the other person so much and you have been misunderstood. In first case, you accept your mistake with a lesson not to repeat it and in second, as you did nothing wrong but you still have to accept your mistake to save your relation with the person. Yes, it scares sometimes when you feel that accepting your mistake could lead you into more worse situation but then things do go wrong sometimes, it also takes courage to forgive, not all are that brave but then some action is necessary in accordance with the mistake, you have to pay for your wrong doings so that lesson should be remembered. There are times when it’s accidental, and there are times when it’s somebody else’s fault. But at the times when you know you did something wrong, the responsible thing to do is stand up and own up to the mistake, accept the consequences, and be part of the solution to the problem resulting from your mistake. Other things like arrogance, ego, ignorance, and things related to all these are different part, and you can add more sides to it.

  4. I’m amazed how you got so much perceptive discussion with two sentences: that’s genius! Ok, with that, I’m on board here.

    • Thank you for appreciating and welcome aboard. Glad to have you here, thanks!
      P.S. – I read one of your comment on another blog and I liked what all you have written there(it was about patience).
