How do you make amends once you realize you’ve made a mistake?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on September 29, 2006
“Everything in my power to make it right without doing any more harm.”
“I just try to go back and correct whatever it is I’ve made a mistake on and hope that no one else notices.”
“The first thing to do is to get some advice from someone who isn’t involved. Then come up with a plan. It’s important to remember that making amends is more than just saying I’m sorry, it’s making an actual change.”
“I usually just apologize and try to make it up to them in some other way.”
