The idea that I need to always be in the right is so self destructive and mentally unhealthy, and admitting my wrongs, or faults, can free me from the selfish desire to be perfect. Admitting my mistakes can take the pressure off of my defense mechanism, and helps me to be able to function well with others. Feeling the need to always be correct only makes me look guilty, and I am grateful for the quality of not feeling required to be perfect. It is mentally healthy to be able to get outside of my head – just learn the great qualities of others, and make people smile. I will admit that I have been slow to gain this skill, but the more that I do it, the more I gain from it.
