This is several years late in coming, but I feel the need to also chime in and give you kudos for your honesty and your ability to confront your past. We all have done and said embarrassing things or made fools of ourselves at one time or another, usually many times over. I used to think it was just me but it's not - it's everyone. But you have had the courage not to run from those things or excuse them but rather to own them and learn from them.Jake wrote: ↑Wed Feb 05, 2020 10:48 pm I apologize to all of the member of this forum that had to tolerate me in the years that I was not really ready to be here. Yet, some of my fondest memories are spending nights refreshing the site and reading every possible post that was sent to the sub forums.
In life I think it's not so much about whether we're wrong, but rather about whether we have the strength to admit that we are, because we all are wrong about something every day of our lives. And we all have said the wrong thing, acted like a fool, etc. - so the importance is less about somehow never doing so but more about having the strength to see our mistakes as mistakes, learn from them and try to do better next time.
