"Sorry seems to be the hardest word."
Have heard this song lots of times sung by Elton John. Did u ever try to think how much this sentence really means?? I feel Sorry can be the easiest word too sometimes. True that its the hardest word but only when u feel sorry.
We apologize when we unintentionally say something hurtful.
U r walking on the road and accidentally bump into somebody on the street and quickly say sorry. [ I am sure u hardly feel sorry for this] At that time isn't it easy to say sorry?? Then why is it difficult when u have made a terrible mistake. Its because u are scared that what if you are not forgiven or what if u say sorry and all u get is few words which will hurt u badly. My experience says a true apology can clear the air and potentially heal a relationship. Doesn't it hurt when u don't say sorry and u know ur mistake?? Think about the other person who is hurt because of u and about the impact of ur words. They say Time heals everything but that pinch always remains in that person's heart(if not mind). Sometimes u don't say sorry because you think its too late to say sorry. Well its never too late to confess. All u need is very little amount of courage and the true feeling of sorry :) I am ready to accept apologies guys :D
