I see what you mean, cdn, and I sure wouldn't want anyone to give themselves negative reinforcement! Thanks for pointing that out.
It might be the language. "I'm wrong" is a lot different than "my statement is wrong" or "I made a mistake." Who I am is not what I say or what I believe. Chances are, my statements are wrong and I make mistakes all over the place, but that doesn't make "me" wrong -- in other words, the danger is identifying with being wrong or being a mistake, which you're right, would be much worse than getting kneecapped! I'm changing the way I use those words, effective now.
