Three Reasons Why We Should Say ‘I Am Sorry’

Life’s not easy and it will never be. That’s why God gives us friends, partners and family for company. Sometimes they make us smile, sometimes they make us cry. Whatever that is, when they’re here, life is always worthwhile. But what about us? What do we do when we weren’t there for them, or when we broke their heart? It’s hard to find a reason to admit that we’ve made a mistake. However, if we think carefully, our judgment, attitudes and words are the solid reasons why we should say ‘I am sorry’.

William Shakespeare once said, ‘There is nothing either good or bad. But thinking makes it so.’ From his words, many people; normal or abnormal, rich or poor, brilliant or dumb, they believe that whatever comes from our judgment does affect our relationship tremendously. Yes, it is our thinking. Sometimes when we think about someone, we see them as what we believe they are. Because of that, we misunderstand and underestimate them. Sometimes we think that they are worthless and only bring troubles to us. Furthermore, if we had bad experience with certain people before, we tend to judge them based on that experience alone and never try to see the good side of them. We never give them a second chance to prove that they have changed. This makes them deserve an apology. Yes, I’ve to admit that I too do this kind of stuff. My bad. Sorry.

Then, here our attitudes make their first debut.Uh huh, attitudes play so many important roles in destroying a relationship. For example, the way we respond to a friend’s joke. Even if the joke isn’t funny enough to make us laugh, it’s okay to smile a bit at least for the effort. But we mock and humiliate them instead. Plus, when we find that we have a different way of life that would never be the same with them, we create barriers in between and treat them with ignorance and prejudice. This always happens in relationships, especially when race and religion take place. So, if we ever do this to anybody, then by now we should have already realized that we must say sorry.

Lastly, the third reason why we should apologize is; of course, our words. In fact, words can be the most suicidal thing in a relationship. We often believe that we have the rights to say out loud what’s in our heart, forgetting the fact that we’re talking to another heart. In a conversation for instance, it is normal to disagree, but it doesn’t mean we should end it with name-calling and foul language. Moreover, we never realize that we might have hurt someone’s feelings when we say without thinking the consequences, especially when it comes to personal appearance in public. For example, ‘Hey, you look fat.’ It may be an ordinary statement that comes out sincerely, but it can be offensive and embarrassing to the ones we are talking to. Funny, I always do that too. I’m sorry.

So, to sum up, we should realize that preserving a relationship is not as easy as creating it. That’s why we must always be aware of our judgment, attitudes and words towards our companionship. Even the slightest tardiness in comprehending their importance can cause turmoil and eventually lead damage to the relationship.

Always remember, discretion is the better part of valour. And hey, this is only an opinion. Don’t use this for your factual studies or assignments. Only a brat would copy and believe that everyone can accept this. Owh, I’m sorry.

So my friends, say sorry!
