It would take an extraordinary person to go through life not learning anything.

We learn all the time, whether we are aware of it or not. In the daily activities of watching TV, reading books, and of course in having conversations among other things, we pick up new information, perspectives & insights.

All this contributes to your growing intellect & evolving values.

In being aware of this trend, it also becomes clear in looking back that there were times when you were uninformed or unexperienced regarding many things. You didn’t have all the facts, or were unaware. Your understanding was still being processed.

On many things, you’ve been wrong.

And this is perfectly natural. It’s a fundamental part of being human.

We tend to be embarrassed about being wrong, but it’s a normal part of life. There is nothing wrong with admitting you’ve been wrong.

It’s only truly embarrassing if you defend views long after you know better. Don’t be too proud to admit you’ve been wrong. It’s pointless. You may think you are saving face, but you are only stunting your growth & appearing foolish.

There is nothing wrong with admitting you’ve been wrong.

Likewise, don’t hold it against people when their outlook & opinion has changed. They may have said things in the past, but what do they say now? That is a better indicator of who they are & what they believe.

Show grace in letting others be wrong as you’ve been wrong.

Don’t let your conversations be dragged down by outdated comments that have long been superseded.

Let’s Talk.
