Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
Most of our intentions are without malice. We, generally, do not set out to harm. So when we are faced with the reality that we did, indeed, harm or hurt someone in some way; it’s hard to admit … to ourselves … that we misjudged, lost control … were wrong. We gave away our autonomy to reacting or indifference rather than responding or listening. A mea culpa is tough to own but it’s a required course in the class of growth. It’s the distinction between blooming – being open, and thriving – learning. The simple act of acknowledgment, “I’m Sorry”, unlocks grace, replenishing our reserves so we can in turn give grace.
Pretty amazing result. I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner 🙂
