Apologize When Necessary
The number one rule when it comes to fixing your mistakes is that you have to own up to your wrongdoings. As Psychology Today reports, according to Aaron Lazare, author, professor of psychiatry, Chancellor and Dean of University of Massachusetts Medical School, and expert on human interaction, “a genuine apology offered and accepted is one of the most profound interactions of civilized people. It has the power to restore damaged relationships…if done correctly, an apology can heal humiliation and generate forgiveness.”
