Maintenance Needs


This is more abstract philosophy than landscape photography, but it relates to something that has impacted my life directly, and society more broadly. I really struggle to understand people who are so tied to what they think is right, that despite proof to the contrary, they hold on to that belief. Why is it so hard for people to admit they were wrong and apologize? I have made plenty of mistakes in my life – plenty of them – but no matter what it may cost me, I always take responsibility for those mistakes and admit when I’m wrong. It can be uncomfortable. It can be awkward. It can create a visceral reaction within me telling me not to admit I did anything wrong in some distorted sense of self-preservation. Perhaps I am blessed that my self-worth isn’t tied to what other people think of me. I’m not afraid to be wrong. I’m not afraid to be vulnerable. I’m not afraid to admit I have faults and flaws. Why should I be? Everyone does. Maybe that is why I struggle to understand why people can’t admit they are wrong. Thanks for indulging me and allowing me to get that off my chest. As the Beastie Boys once said: “You know, maintenance needs.”
