“The first time I admitted that I think it’s very hard to apologise – even when I know I’ve done something wrong – was during a #globalguytalk. I just don’t want to admit to being wrong. One time, a friend and I were talking, and we disagreed on which year a movie came out. Even though he googled the answer and proved himself right, I just wouldn’t admit it. I just couldn’t let him be right after sticking to my theory for so long. I’ve realised that I won’t benefit from being so proud and stubborn, so nowadays I try to be more humble.”
