Falling on your own sword

Share this:

Falling on Your Own Sword If we put aside ego and our need to be right, often falling on our own sword is the best path to take. For many insignificant things, if we apologize or take responsibility (even if we aren’t at fault) it takes care of the other person and can even build […]
