As humans that we are, it is inherent to do wrong because nature we are wrong doers and that is why the Holy Book which is the Bible says nature we are sinners.
But even though committing offense is natural to man, it is also human and natural to man for any offender to apologize , ask for forgiveness and say – “I am Sorry” though, it is the most difficult thing in the entire life of a man to say.
According to an online dictionary, Sorry is a feeling or distressed through sympathy with someone else’s misfortune.
Its natural that human find it extremely difficult to say sorry to someone they have wronged. Saying sorry to a large extent very much depends on your mindset, background and how you position your feelings.
You will find it easier to say sorry if you have positive approach to life and that is very important as we live daily. Its vital that as humans we make saying sorry an attitude and this will go a long way in helping us accept mistakes.
Why sorry is difficult to say
We should understand that sorry has to do with accepting mistakes and flaws; so to be successful in life you have to be ready and prepared to make and accept mistakes.
It is through making mistakes that we discover and learn new things.
Saying sorry is never a one sided affairs. It should come both from the offender and “offended”. It is hurting to someone if a person in the wrong side doesn’t accept his or her mistake. It is even more interesting to note that the people who do not accept and feel sorry for their mistakes tend to get so much annoyed when other people wrong them without apologizing.
Why say sorry?
Jennifer white in 2012 pointed out eight empowering reasons why its necessary to say “I’m sorry”—and really mean it.
Through saying sorry, you feel relieved from guilt, fear,stress, anger and restlessness among others.
Most atimes people don’t even realize the hurt they are creating around themselves failing to take responsibility for their actions. It might be you or someone you know, every one knows someone who has suffered from this at some time not knowing that often times this one word is more than a life one million excuses and explanations… In many relationships today, sorry has helped in putting their past behind them. Saying sorry is basically and intentionally accepting our mistakes.
But personally and on the contrary, I feel saying sorry too often especially when one has done nothing can be dangerous. Funny right? Well, I said personally…. I just think that when others see us taking a submissive role too often, they may think they can take advantage of us, trample on ones dignity. But don’t get me wrong, I just mean we should learn to say sorry when we have done wrong most especially i.e learn to say sorry only when you know you are wrong or made to understand you are wrong. Importantly say sorry for peace to reign…
Choose the part of humility
Choose love above pride
Choose to say sorry and you will experience success always in every area of your life!…
