Have you ever watched a cat try to cover up on a hardwood floor after it missed the litter box? Have you ever felt the sensation of physical pain when you realized you would need to admit a mistake? Have you ever learned a lesson from a mistake that made your life better?
All mistakes can be opportunities to grow and learn, but we almost always have to admit our mistakes and talk about them to benefit from those opportunities. One of the best habits we can form in life is the ability to speak openly about our own, and other people’s mistakes, not by passing judgement though, but by finding the lessons.
