"I am sorry" can make a great difference, but it also depends on how, when you say it and what you do after. Bury your pride today and tell him or her "I am sorry.” If you hate to say I am sorry then don’t put yourself in a situation that will require you to apologize as a courtesy. Henny Youngman said: “If you're going to do something tonight that you'll be sorry for tomorrow morning, sleep late.” Is “I am sorry” a license for us to continue to hurt our partners? No. Is there something more we can do after saying “I am sorry?” Yes. Grace Poe suggests that: “It's always best to ask for forgiveness if you feel that you made a mistake. And again, asking for forgiveness is not just saying the words 'I'm sorry'; it is also offering what you need to do.” I read this article by Josh Misner, titled, “The One Thing Everyone Should Do after an Apology.” He made this profound statement: “If saying sorry is akin to admitting fault, then doing so is not enough to restore a relationship. Taking the extra step to ask for forgiveness involves a dramatic shift in power, which requires humility on the part of the asker and subsequently places power into the hands of the person wronged. By gifting this power to the person whose dignity was robbed, it effectively restores and heals the proverbial wound.” Learn how to say I am sorry, mean what you say, ask for forgiveness, don’t keep repeating the same mistakes. I wish you all the best in your love life...By Danjuma Iliya.
