We all learn from our mistakes

We can only learn from mistakes once you have admitted you made it, as soon as you start blaming other people you distance yourself from any possible lesson. If you stand up and honestly say “This is my mistake and I am responsible” it makes learning from it possible by moving the focus away from the blame assignment and towards understanding. This is what I’ve learnt and always followed so why do people have a differing opinion when it comes to car accidents?

Immediately after my car accident I openly said it was my fault and wasn’t ashamed to admit this. However everyone I spoke to afterwards told me I shouldn’t have done this! Those of you that know me well know that I am a very honest person so whatever the circumstance I cannot see why you wouldn’t openly admit when you made a mistake. Although that day it was an accident its still a mistake and something I’ve learn’t from, I was the one who didn’t check my blind spot properly and I was the one who pulled into the other car and I was the one that caused this…

but I’ve learn’t from my experience! Since this day I check and double check my blindspot… but how many drivers are there out there that have failed to admit to their mistake and therefore failed to learn from it?
