Sometimes it takes an unexpected flash of insight to realize that what you are doing might be wrong, but it takes tremendous courage to admit it and then do something about it.
Very true. If your anything like me, from which it sounds like you are (an over analysing stubborn person) then admitting your wrong is the ultimate sacrifice of pride. No-one wants to lose their pride do they?
I think a broadened look at the situation can make it easier to change an opinion. Try this viewpoint:
"man should never be ashamed to own he has been in the wrong, which is by saying, in other words, that he is wiser today than he was yesterday." - Alexander Pope (1688-1744)
It's one of the things I like about Clark and Huffington. I don't mind politicians who change their minds. I actually trust them more than ones who don't.
Admitting that one is not perfect is very very difficult in a world where the masses expect a good leader to be perfect, whatever the "real" definition of perfect could possibly be (I don't know).
