When you know what is being said to you is actually correct, accept it, don't try to explain yourself and do as you are told.
Life is so much easier if we have understanding that no one is ever going to be better than another person and that all of us are on a journey. Yes, even those we think are above us, they too are on a journey. Therefore, tread carefully with people around you.
Learn to look for peace with everyone and in every situation.
When you were out of line, please accept being told and don't take offence.
If you take offence, it's a huge sign that you have a trauma in that area.
Remember that God created us perfect but wrong is wrong and a person that points your wrong out, is a friend.
