When you make a mess, though, there is a fool-proof way to clean it up. I won’t say it’s easy, because it’s not, but it is usually effective. Follow this four-step process and you’ll be better for the wear.
1. Acknowledge your wrongdoing.
3. Fix It.
4. Move On.
Screwing up stinks. You feel bad about yourself and your choices, and oftentimes feel upset for the grief you’ve caused others. Even the most conscientious of people occasionally practices injudiciousness. Don’t let it define you. Rise above it and deal with your transgressions head-on by acknowledging, apologizing, fixing, and moving on. It will help you be a better you and help those you’ve hurt along the way, to properly heal.
