IF YOU MESS UP, WOULD YOU JUST SAY SORRY!


Apologizing is probably one of the hardest things for people to do. I’m sorry was never enough. I don’t know, but every time it comes to older men or women, apologizing seems to be a sign of weakness that means if you admit fault then suddenly you are considered as a submissive human being. However, do you realize that if you do go throughout your whole life without apologizing that means you are basically saying that you are not a developing human being which is the dumbest thing on earth.

Do you honestly think that if you have gone throughout your whole life without any single apologizing means that you are so perfect that you do not need to do apologize?

Read it! If you mess up, then you should learn to apologize, it is not because it makes you look weak, but it is because the person that you are apologizing to, if they worth something to you they deserve to hear it less than recognize when you are wrong showing the possibility of growth.

NOBODY IS PERFECT!

I hate when people cannot admit that they are wrong, especially when you catch them on the spot. They will do and say anything they can to make themselves sound right. They will always bring something that was already resolved in the past which does not even make sense. WOULD YOU JUST SAY SORRY AND MOVE ON! It is not really that hard!

One of the most ridiculous things I have heard from a friend that she said it is impossible for her to apologize because it is too hard when in the meantime, she is able to do way bigger thing that almost even stronger people are not able to do. Is say sorry, really that hard?

Apologizing is easy, just recognize that you are wrong, then saying sorry. I screwed up many times and I apologize all the times is that makes me the miserable person. No, definitely not! Apologizing does not necessarily make things better, but without apologizing, there is no progress, nothing is going to happen.

Burning Man

One of the most powerful art pieces from Burning Man: A sculpture of two adults after a disagreement, sitting with their backs to each other. Yet, the inner child in both of them simply want to connect. Age has many beautiful gifts but one we could live without is the pride and resentment we hold onto when we have conflicts with others.

The forgiving, free spirit of children is our true nature. I remember this when I feel stubborn, but later I learned when I was in that kind of circumstance that it is only the matter of heart and ego. People should put it aside for a while and to get another breakthrough from apologizing either you are wrong or not. Remember that apologizing does not always mean that you are wrong and the other person is right. It just means that you value your relationship more than your ego.

The musings

If you in that kind of circumstance either waiting for an apology from someone or the one who needs to apologize to someone, just think about all the good things about that person and the bitterness will fly away from the atmosphere. People are often unreasonable and self-centered, whatever it is, forgive them anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow, but still do good anyway. Give your best anyway for you see in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them.

Nobody is perfect should be on our mind, so every mistake won’t intimidate ourselves, but releases our peaceful mind to do better than before. Learn from your mistakes, but never regret. One day you will realize that sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places.
