The prompt for the 5th is: Do you tend to cover up your failings or admit your mistakes?
I am almost too hard on myself when it comes to my mistakes, shortfalls, or failings. I vilify myself and give myself a harder time than anyone else will. It’s not a healthy thing to do at all, but I have no problem admitting when I’m wrong or make a mistake.
What’s the sense in trying to argue or hide it? At the end of the day the net result of my actions is that I was wrong and no amount of verbal magic will undo or change that. Know what I mean?
So yeah, long story short, I absolutely admit when I’m wrong. I can get squirmy or embarrassed about it, but I always own up to it.
