Dealing with Difficult People: Those Who Cannot Admit They Are Wrong – Positively Positive Positively Positive

Why Can’t Some People Admit They Are Wrong?

I understand that people who cannot admit they are wrong have a pretty low level of self-esteem. Their egos are so fragile that they cannot handle the prospect of being wrong because they interpret a fallible person to be someone who is worthless. They have little resilience and cannot shake off a mistake, pick themselves up and learn from their mistakes like most people are able to do. My guess is that the admission of any imperfections made Meg feel as if she was a terrible, horrible, no good person who didn’t deserve to live another day. Or, being fallible may have also made her feel “just like everybody else” and she sought the feeling of superiority in order to feel like she was worth anything at all.
