Don’t hide your failures.
Failures are nothing to be ashamed of. Talk to your friends and family about what went wrong. They may be able to help, or at least offer some comfort. Even if they can’t help you, telling them your story might help them. Keeping things secret never helps anyone.
So I had the amazing/stupid idea of putting this into practice on more formal terms. I propose to create an international Admit You’re Wrong Day.
As many of you are bloggers, I challenge you to have a go yourselves. It might be therapeutic, if it doesn’t leave you looking like a complete idiot.
I’m going to kick this off myself, and so my next two posts will be called I was wrong about religion, and I was wrong about nuclear power.
