Saying Sorry!

Why is it so hard to apologize when you know you are wrong, especially us adults? Sometimes people don’t apologize because they don’t care enough about the person or the relationship. They don’t want to own their mistakes and feel uncomfortable in doing it. Other times, they may have not realized they wronged or hurt the other person until it is brought to their attention. For me, I don’t always recognize when I have wronged someone, but when I do, or when I am told, I will apologize.

Too many times we let our pride run things and it causes us to have issues. The bible tells us in Proverbs 16:18 that pride leads to self-destruction and arrogance to a person’s downfall. What does this mean? I take it to mean then when you become overconfident about abilities, something will always happen that will show you, you are not as good as you think.

I remember a time when I allowed subtle disrespect to go unchecked because I thought I was keeping the peace and helping a certain relationship. I kept overlooking and stuffing the situation down in my psyche until one day it just blew its top. When I confronted the person about the way they were treating me, they could have cared less. It was clear they were only using me for their benefit, and I allowed it. When I told them how their behavior was making me feel, I should have received an apology. But in that moment, I realized, I would never get it. They have always been this way with others and why was my situation any different? But let me tell you this, that apology could have saved the relationship. Now that part of my life is dead and buried and will not be resurrected!

We will not always be right and sometimes when we do things others get hurt in the process. It’s up to us if we want to save the relationship and accept accountability for what we did or did not do. Are there some apologies you may owe someone you have wronged? Ask God for discernment and make your wrongs right. Apologizing helps repair those relationships and can help people feel comfortable with one another again. Let’s normalize the saying “I am sorry” and mean it with our whole heart, mind, and spirit. When we maintain peace and harmony things will be able run smooth and we can love the life we are living.

Sending you love, light and positive vibes,
