For example, when I realize that I am in the wrong while my little brother has been proven correct I'm kind of reluctant to admit it to him. I don't have that problem when that happens with my friends or teachers though. That is something that I personally need to work on so that I can become a better person. Recently, another example of someone admitting their faults was seen.
