Can we talk here? After it's just between you & me, right? I messed up. More than once I made an error.
Hey it's how I became HIV positive: Some of the guys I dated; two business I started that didn't "bizz"
As an addictions counselor, I know in the "12 Steps" I've been able to apply a few to my life
#5: Admitting to my self and another person my wrong
By applying #10: Continue to take personal inventory and when wrong, promptly admit it
But there's A LOT more to redeeming my mistakes: My ownership and admittance alone wont work
For me, it's seeing what went wrong and making a wise choice.
I must process the event, see where I could have done better and seek an apolgy
Emotionally, guilt and shame can start to eat away at our inner core: It's when I/We can see the error and move on that I/We can feel redeemed.
