The universal magical word : “Sorry”. This one word could mean many emotions, bring about changes among people and do miracles in relationships!
If you asked me to mention one word that can change a situation upside down, turn anger into peace, hatred into love, enemies into friends,…
I would say “Sorry”
After a really long day at work, I had a huge tiff with my best friend. We had an argument – some difference of opinion, which led to our very first big fight in 5 years! Although my point was right, I felt really bad for hurting him. He, on the other hand didn’t care if I was right, he was purely angry and blurted out really rude words and spoke to me disrespectfully which is so unlike him. He didn’t like being pointed out and he didn’t want to take it either! All this was not because of my words, but my tone of speech. I should have talked about his mistake smoothly instead of confronting him so bluntly.
We didn’t talk the whole day and I felt very bad. The friendship meant a lot to me than the argument. So I texted him saying “sorry” for being so blunt. I told him I should have discussed with him in a better way. That one word melted his ego and he immediately admitted his fault. He apologized for his poor behavior and we talked it out thus solving the misunderstanding smoothly.
Wow! What a relief! Am glad that the so-called unworthy argument did not ruin our friendship that has been carefully built, guarded and cherished for years!
Sorry : A magical word indeed. 🙂
Sometimes letting go is a good thing. While sometimes it is even better to say sorry.
Saying sorry doesn’t always mean you are wrong. It is the relationship that matters.
While most times, it is the ego that stops us from apologizing! Even if we know we are wrong, we don’t like to admit it. The ego makes us carry the painful guilt filled conscience forever. Why let yourself be troubled by something so bad if you could fix it with just one word?
Do not carry that burden of guilt or shame if you can mend it with just one word – “sorry”.
Shedding your ego is better than bearing that terrible feeling locked deep inside your heart forever. You deserve peace!
If you always wanted to apologize to someone or mend a broken relationship, then take this opportunity to do it now. Say the magical word to that person and free yourself from the horrible burden right away.
Have a good day! 🙂
