When you make a mistake, you may not want to admit it, but sometimes admitting defeat or mistakes is one of the best things you can do. In the same category, there are plenty of things that you may not want to admit that you should go ahead and admit anyway. People who aren’t willing to admit to certain things are making their own lives a little more complicated. While you may not want to admit to anyone that you still sleep with the blanket your parents gave you when you were six, there are a few things you shouldn’t be ashamed to admit.
You Don’t Know it All
Sometimes admitting you don’t know what’s going on, the answer to a question, or what something means is a better road to take. When you pretend to know something you don’t actually know, you make yourself stress more and you look like an idiot. If you don’t know something, just admit it and move on.
You Spend Money On Yourself
Too many people like to pretend they don’t spend money on themselves. I used to do this, because I was always afraid of offending someone or causing someone to think of me differently if they knew how much I spend on myself. However, I no longer have that problem, because I don’t believe in lying about things when asked. For example, I completely own the fact that I spend $150 every four to six weeks on my hair and that I don’t wear anything on my face that comes from a drug store or that I haven’t spent less than $675 on a pair of shoes in the past five years. People will never get to really know you unless you are honest with them about things you value.
Your Kids Aren’t Perfect
How many times do I hear acquaintances tell me that their children are perfect? Far too often; and no, I don’t buy it for a second. My kids are great, they are really very well-behaved and sweet, but sometimes they are evil little monsters who make me want to run away from home and never come home. Fortunately, they aren’t like that on a regular basis. However, I don’t believe it for a second when someone tells me her kid acts like an angel 24/7. Admit it; your kids are you-know-what’s from time to time. Admitting it makes you more likable.
