I am NOT perfect. I make mistakes. Sometimes I REACT inappropriately- instead of RESPONDING to a challenge.
But you know what? When I screw up - after I calm down from being triggered - I APOLOGIZE.
Not to "be the bigger person". No to "seem sweet". Not to "make them feel guilty." But because I AM TRYING TO BE THE BEST THAT I CAN BE AS A HUMAN!!! And it's hard to say sorry. Its embarrassing admitting wrong.
However I HAVE TO LIVE WITH MYSELF. I want a nice clear conscience. When I go to sleep at night I want to know that if I did wrong I cleaned it up.
It's okay to make errors - it's not okay to keep repeating them!
