Apologizing isn’t generally easy, but, we all make mistakes. However intelligent we may be, or wealthy, or experienced, we all make mistakes. Sometimes we realize, other times we don’t. But we all make mistakes because we are human. Only God does not ever make any mistakes.
WHO DOES IT HURT?
Some of our mistakes hurt our own interests. They don’t hurt anyone else. But sometimes, we do things knowingly or unknowingly that hurt others. That is the time to apologize. Some of us have no problem apologizing. Others of us avoid it like the plague.
Why do many of us say sorry even for an insignificant hurt, while some wait for ages to start apologizing after committing gigantic blunders? That is a mystery. It all depends upon our thinking, our upbringing, our humility, our sense of right and wrong, and our opinion of others feelings and so on. But do we become smaller by saying sorry? Are we confessing a blunder by saying sorry? Are we hurting our ego by saying sorry? Certainly not.
WHEN APOLOGIZING HELPS
We rather become better by saying sorry. When we say sorry, we feel good, the other party feels good. By saying sorry, we are not making a mistake of confessing a blunder and putting ourselves at risk of ridicule, but saying:
“Look here, I made this mistake, and I am very sorry for that. Please forgive me and let us be friends again.”
An apology makes us a better person by cleansing us of our guilt. Let us all say sorry as soon as we realize that by any act of ours, we have hurt someone even if the hurt is insignificant. If the mistake is bigger, our apology should match it to bring matters back to normal.
Let us apologize at all the times, we make a mistake and make someone happy again and get happiness in return.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
