When I mess up, I paused and find a solution. I am not the type of person looking for somebody to blame when miseries comes. If it is my fault I would rather find an answer to solve it, if not then I would claim it and ask consideration and forgiveness.
I hate those people who can’t accept their mistakes. Everyone is entitled to mess up but have the choice to make it right. If you are aware of that, you have always the chance to grow.
