I have found my judgment or assessments in a stressful environment can not just be flawed but completely 180 ° opposite of what I was thinking.
The walls go up, fears take over and my reptilian fight or flight reaction takes rule and the fight is on… even when someone is there to help.
I know I am not alone in this. This is the norm. This is what it means to be human.
This is more about acknowledgement than an apology. I learn from my humanity experience or at least I try. This is what makes the shame of being wrong tolerable.
