Have you ever escaped from saying Sorry at a place where it was most needed?

Although some of you must be thinking that it becomes too formal if we say Thank You or Sorry to our family and friends. When we were in school, we were taught about it. We actually had lessons to teach us good manners and magical words.

Sometimes your ego comes in the way of your relations and you turn your back from your family and friends. Intentionally or unintentionally you hurt the person you love or mean a lot to you. But do you immediately show that you are sorry or it takes a while to be ok and then say sorry?

You must have seen some people simply stop talking to the other person just because it was too hard to accept the fault or say Sorry. Long friendships break due to such circumstances. People who were once the best of friends suddenly become enemies and the bond of friendship breaks. Just because of one word – SORRY, these things happen.

Can it mend Relationships?

If you would have given importance to this word, things would have been different. No matter how much you feel that this is a formality or in friendships, there is no sorry or no thank you. But it matters. This small five letter word can mend relationships. It can heal in ways you can’t even imagine. When things go wrong, saying Sorry does wonders.

If you say sorry when you are wrong, it will not make you a small person. You will be the bigger one amongst the two. It is Ok to feel regretful or apologetic. Your relationships are way above and important than this. Sometimes its best to admit your fault and mend your relationship because life has to go on. Holding grudges will not benefit you at all.

The best form of love is that of Forgiveness

But the whole purpose is defeated if you repeat it or keep on saying sorry. A sorry from the heart is all it takes. It should carry weight and it should be done wholeheartedly. Being a bigger person will also require you to be forgiving as well. It takes a heart to say Sorry but a lot of strength to be forgiving too.

Always remember, a sorry should not be accompanied by an excuse. The people close to you or whom you love would not like to hear that excuse. Little gestures make a lot of difference too. When you have done something which has hurt the other person, you can make him or her feel special by a small act too.

“Never ruin an apology with an excuse”

Benjamin Franklin

I personally feel it is important and I don’t think twice before saying Sorry. If I have done something wrong or I have hurt the other person, I apologize. It is difficult to forgive and move on in life but not impossible. It may take a while but if your relationship is important to you, try and make amends.

There is no time in life to hold grudges. Love your life. Mistakes and forgiveness are a part and parcel of life.

“An apology is a lovely perfume, it can transform the clumsiest moment into a gracious gift”

Margaret Lee Runbeck
