It’s inevitable. We will screw up. We’ll do something we later wish we hadn’t. We will make a mess of some things. Maybe a lot of things. What’s the best thing we can do? Deny it and blame someone else, of course.
Not all of have this fortitude, though. We cave. We admit. We take responsibility and sometimes in a big way, shouting it out to everyone (who may or may not give a rat’s petunia). Shouting it out is good for the soul. And who knows, maybe someone will shout back.
