When Attacked, Step Back to Go Forward

When someone accuses you of lying, the first response is to get defensive.

When in defense mode, it is hard to “see” the other person, to think about their needs.

It takes humility to stop feeling attacked, to step back, and ask more questions.

Once you understand, then you can repair, apologize, explain, teach, and move forward.
