I have caught myself arguing with someone thinking there was no way I was wrong. I was absolutely, positively sure I was right to only later find out I was dead wrong. How do you come back to that person and ask for forgiveness for your bad behavior. I tried to explain how hard life had been at that with all the crazy things going on around me. However; I know we are all responsible for our emotions and attitudes. As a tender-hearted woman, I could not comprehend this. I argued with one of my dearest friends and I was upset with all that had happened. I was wrong.
I wish so much that I had not been so hard-headed and simply conceded to what my friend had been trying to tell me.
We all have these moments though. The moment when you think…how could I have been so sure back then and yet so wrong?
God is teaching me that we are in control of our attitudes and our emotions. In fact, we are in control of how we accept the wisdom of others. I owed my friend an apology. Also, I am going to think twice next time I think I am absolutely right because there is a chance that I’m dead wrong.
