X: Wrong

Hello one and all!

How did your teachers mark an answer as incorrect?  Mine did so with a big red X.  Usually the reason for something being wrong was clear, but there have been times where the teacher was incorrect or where something (perhaps in an essay) was more complicated than a check or X would imply.

Is there anything wrong with being wrong?  It’s about the mindset more than the occasion.  People learn from their mistakes, so getting something incorrect can still be a step forward.  It’s when the mind is closed to the possibility of differing ideas, opinions, or sometimes even cold hard facts, that being wrong has further implications than that one situation.  Being wrong isn’t the end of the world, and it’s not something to be ashamed of.  As long as you learn from the experience and repeat as few mistakes as possible, you can hold your head up high.

As always, much love!
