do you know when to say I'M SORRY?


A lot of people abuse using the words I'm sorry. Just because such words exist does not mean that we can hurt other people as often as we want.

Most of the I'm sorry given nowadays are so insincere, don't you just hate hearing it? Some people think that just because they said the-magic-words already, then whatever they did should be forgiven and forgotten right away. I don't think it's as simple as that. Saying I'm sorry without really meaning it only makes the situation worse. It only add more wounds to an already hurting heart.

It is so unbelievable also that some people apologize and does the same thing again and again and again. An apology has to be real to heal.

What about you, when do you say I'm sorry? When is an apology acceptable for you?

An apology has to be real... to heal. ^_^

Yes it really has to be real.. Well, for me, it is difficult to say when it actually was real or meant. But I guess not doing it again is enough to convince me that it was genuine. And also, I believe in giving second chances. I say sorry when I know I have hurt someone and I do it privately. Seeing him bitter is an instant realization for me that I have been wrong. I then always see to it that I make it up to him.

I believe it's also good to say I'm sorry when you're not sure if you've done something wrong, but sorry can be used too much also! I try to play it safe and treat everyone kind so I won't have to say I'm sorry. Great post! Great blog!
