should one apologize for making mistakes

Why do you Apologize ?


It is a small but big world and as humans we are bound to make mistakes one way or the other but the question is do we really have to apologize for our mistakes and why if we need to? somebody told me perfection is far from us and that is why we make our mistakes but the question is still there. Sometimes we make mistakes and refuse to acknowledge or accept that we are wrong because we don’t consider or accept the fact that we have made a mistake or sometimes our ego get over us and we stubbornly refuse  to apologize. Is there really a problem when we refuse to acknowledge our error?, not necessarily but the fact remains that we might repeat same mistake next time if we don’t take responsibility for it.


There are categories to making mistakes, some people make mistakes knowingly and some make it unknowingly but what do we do when we are in this situation, do we say “I AM SORRY?”  when we make mistakes which from my point of view would be the right thing to do and the matter would be resolved and you will be conscious of not making that type of mistake next time. It is always a good thing to apologize if it involves another party.

Mistakes happen in all kinds of environment such as at home, work, school, business place and other areas and different situations can lead to mistakes. A leader who refuses to accept the fact that they are wrong would always have lack of trust from the people around him because he never accepts his fault and own up to his mistakes due to pride and ego.

It will be a good thing if anyone can own up to their mistakes and avoid guilt or fear especially when you did something wrong in the office by misplacing a file for a meeting. Best thing to do is to let your boss know immediately and apologize for it indicates your humility and i am sorry always communicates respect and this might be the best time to get the best advice and concerns from your boss and i am sure it will help you in making sure the same mistake does not repeat itself. My Question is should a manager, friends, acquaintance and any other person apologize for their mistakes?, what i will say is yes.
