Saying our sorry is a way of admitting our mistakes. It is also a good start of smoothing things over if there is a misunderstanding between you and your partner. I do not understand why it is hard for other people to say their sorry. Well not for me and hubby. We both know how to admit mistakes and say our sorry promptly. And we both believe that if we really mean it, we have to say it face to face and not through letters or anything unless one of us is away. We also show our sincerity through actions. If I promised not to do again the thing that pissed him off, then I will not do that ever again, and vice versa.
I do not know if this is just easy for me to say because we haven’t had any major, major mistakes and misunderstandings yet so we haven’t experienced to bribe one another for our apologies to be accepted. While others need to do different creative ways to apologize like giving jewelries, flowers or writing poems, for us a sincere sorry is always enough for forgiveness.
Oftentimes a person fails to apologize not because he do not want to, but because he is just not used to saying it or he do not know that he hurt his partner’s feelings. I think all of us should be sensitive enough and pay attention to the feelings of those around us especially our partners. If you are not used to say sorry, it is just easy. Just be brave and responsible enough to admit your mistakes then say your sorry sincerely. Sometimes saying “I am SORRY” is all that it needs for a reconciliation.
