Think about how you react to someone who made a mistake and then owned up to it versus someone who refuses to admit she’s wrong. It’s not that people expect us to be perfect any more than we expect them to be perfect.
We expect mistakes.
We also expect honesty and a sincere desire to make right on those mistakes.
Try something new. Make a mistake. Own it. Ask for help.
