Keep your slate clean

“Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”
— Bruce Lee

Do you admit your fault when you are in the wrong? It may seem like one of the most difficult things to accomplish, yet self-accusation is a healthy habit, a self-cleansing process. Listening to your voice of conscience rather than the voice of your ego makes you feel good about yourself. Little else does as effectively. The inner voice, as it is also known, judges your behaviour towards others and, more importantly, towards yourself. Having scruples, a sense of what is right and wrong, determines your character; it tells you, and others, the kind of person you really are. Saying “I am sorry” each time you are in the wrong enables you to wipe your slate clean and keep it that way. It's the duster of your soul.
