Friday Thoughts

Why do people find it hard to say they are sorry when they do a mistake?

My guess is such people do not wish to acknowledge their guilt.

Self Image

They give importance to ‘self-image’.

We always have either major or minor arguments with our friends, colleagues, parents, children and spouses and may use harsh words or lose cool and later repent but sadly fail to express our sincere apologies.

I find it really a kind of stupidity 

We all make mistakes and that is how we learn a lot and develop confidence and don’t repeat the same mistake.

You & I and all the others know that nobody is perfect.

Refusing to say ‘sorry’ can have different reasons and I am not into those details.

Still, I feel nothing wrong in asking for apologies even forgiveness.

By doing this, is not your mind at peace?

Why do want to play dangerous games?

Do you accept your mistake and say “I’m Sorry”?

How many seconds do you take to say ‘I’m sorry?

I don’t know about you.

But I don’t hesitate to accept my mistakes without any hesitance. Zero ego.

Power of the three words-I am sorry

“When you forgive, you free your soul. But when you say I’m sorry, you free two souls.“ Donald L Hicks

Apology 

“Proper apologies have three parts:

1) What I did was wrong.

2) I feel bad that I hurt you.

3) How do I make this better?”  Randy Pausch

Is it possible not to hurt anybody all the time?

My friend, it’s just not possible. Let us be frank.

We always hurt others by so many means knowingly or unknowingly.

Everybody hurts sometimes.

I recollect the song ‘Everybody Hurts’ by R.E.M.

Message

“I’m sorry” can put an end to almost any argument.

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    In Canada, we say sorry a lot, but as a form of politeness. For example, if you accidentally bumped into me, I wold probably say sorry to you automatically, without even thinking about it. I think we probably have just as many problems with genuine apologies as anyone else.

    One of my favorite fictional detectives, Inspector Gamache (Louise Penny Three Pines novels) has four rules of life that lead to wisdom, saying these thing: “I don’t know,” “I need help, “I was wrong,” and “I’m sorry.”
    Good rules.
