I have always had some difficulties to accept and tell openly that I have done a mistake. I felt cornered and embarrassed😓😞.
With my mental fitness development, I could identify that I share this behaviour with people with the hyper-achiever saboteur.
This internal voice is telling me: "you have to succeed, otherwise you're not worthy of respect". Linking my identity to my success pushed me to avoid failures at all cost. Acknowledging a mistake would have been a threat to my identity. That is why it was so difficult.
How difficult is it for you to acknowledge that you have done a mistake❓
How much do you link your identity to your success❓
