A sincere apology helps two people. It eases one’s hurt and relieves the other’s guilt.
It takes great strength to humbly apologize. To apologize is to value truth more than you do your pride. Reluctance to apologize when you’re wrong isn’t a matter of logic, but of pride.
A true apology includes an admission of wrongdoing. Some people will never apologize. You’ll feel better if you forgive them anyway. To sincerely apologize is to value another person’s feelings more than your own.
I was wrong.
Please forgive me.
These are words
Of courage and healing.
