“You’re just going to have to own up to the fact that you told a lie.” 「嘘をついたと認めるしかないよ。」


If you make a mistake or do something wrong, you have two choices. You can recognize that you did that (and maybe try to fix it), or you can insist that you didn’t do anything wrong. If you “own up to” your misdeeds, it’s the first step toward making up for them and perhaps being forgiven.
