If you have made a mistake do you find it tough to own up to it? Have you ever tried to cover up a mistake rather than owning up to it?

I really dislike it when people try to justify themselves rather than just apologise and admit when they are wrong. I try hard to admit when I'm wrong but it's not always easy.
Yes, in my childhood, teens and early stages of my career I did have trouble accepting my mistake or wrong acts/decisions. But as I matured along with career growth and in personal life too, realized that there are more ways than one (or mine) to say/do anything. So, I developed a diplomatic way to accept consequences at work and in personal life, just used a straight apology and took care to avoid the wrongs recurring.
No. I don't have a problem with being wrong. I think the only way to grow as a person is to learn from one's mistakes.
Years ago, I did find it quite hard to own up.I was very worried of the outcome.

As time go's by we all change, it is part of being mature as a person.
If I do something wrong, I can't wait to say 'sorry'...I like to clear the air as quickly as possible....or I just worrie over it.
I told all who I know some years ago''If I ever upset you please just let me know''.
It has worked very well, because we all fall short at times.
Plus we learn from our mistakes.(well I hope we do). :)
My mistakes always shows on my face.So I have always owned up for something I did.
It depends on whom I have wronged and what I have done. With some people, I can easily admit when I have been wrong and promptly apologise, but with others my pride can get in the way. It's certainly something I am working on.

While I dislike being wrong, I've had so much practice it's quite easy to admit it now.
