I make mistakes
I hurt people
I am not perfect
I am clumsy with my words
I am working on all of these things to improve myself and to improve the way I make other people feel.
Saying sorry can be very difficult. Swallowing your pride, setting your ego aside and taking responsibility for your actions is both one of the hardest and one of the most rewarding things you can do. Life becomes a lot less hard when you realise and admit that you make mistakes.
We are all human and will never get it right 100% of the time. But we can be mindful, which means being aware and taking action when we do mess up.
