We all make mistakes.

We don’t always own our mistakes.

Whether it is pride or hubris, embarrassment or just avoidance … we will avoid owning up to our mistakes.

It is a pity really, because along with mistakes comes a great opportunity to strengthen a relationship.

This applies equally at work or at home!

Some of the best client relationships come from tough situations handled well.

You will often hear that couples will tolerate arguments because the “making up” can be so good!

Families can be torn apart by bickering that could be avoided with a heartfelt apology.

So if you erred … apologise, own it AND find a way to make it right!

Even if you did not make a mistake an apology can defuse a situation before it gets out of control.

Will you let your ego win ... or will you opt for better relationships?

"Apologies aren't meant to change the past, they are meant to change the future."

I write these articles with the intent of sharing MY experience and knowledge gained during MY life journey. From the 16 year old joining the Royal Navy, through many incarnations, to the grey haired guy who built a business. If you find a nugget here, then I am happy. If the message offends you then I apologise, that was never my intent. I know and recognize there are many people and groups who have a far bigger challenge than I have had and I only wish you well.
