We all make mistakes. Sometimes the price of error affects others in profound ways. The prices we pay may be significantly greater than expected and the lessons may be life-altering. Being responsible for our actions is paramount. When someone wrongs us, the experience of them not being accountable can truly have a negative effect on the relationship.
Before jumping to any conclusions, it may be wise to seek counsel from a trusted advisor before making things right. Taking ownership is crucial. Also, without assuming irresponsibility, we get to allow for failure. Give yourself a break and you won’t feel broken.
