As an adult, admitting when you’re wrong is one of the best things you can do. It shows a level of self awareness that is appluaded.
People look at you differet when you can openly apologize about something you thought was right. Maturity of course plays a big factor as well. As kids, we are too embarassed and worried about looking stupid.
Looking stupid will be a big part of life, as well as compromising, which is still a struggle for me myself.
