David Kanigan: Inspiration, Ideas & Information
Adapted From You Are Worth Saving
One of the most hurtful things in the world to me is someone not being able to say “I am really sorry” – and meaning it. No explanation, no rationalization, no excuses. Just truly knowing how to say “I am sorry”.
Hmmmmmm. Well then….
Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus
Laughing..I know my friend, I know..I live with a Martian and he still struggles to figure out what makes this weird specimen he has chosen from another planet, tick. When I showed him this post – which I had to because he knows it’s a touchy subject for me, he laughed…and said, “and the problem with this is…?”. Had he not been kidding, he would have been in real trouble..
Don’t we hear those excuses all the time? Most of them translate into, “I’m not sorry and it was either your fault or it was beyond my control.”
I always hated that line from “Love Story” — “love means never having to say you’re sorry.”. I always thought that was hogwash (though maybe I just misunderstood). I’m with Mimi–it’s wicked important to be able to say those words when they need to be said.
Yes, this kind of “apology” makes my ass tired. And my butt is tired around most of the people I know.
LMAO. “a** tired.” Never heard this line before. LOVED. That being said, I need some different perspectives (maybe some male ones). I’m getting carpet-bombed with female pov here.
Reblogged this on Simple.Interesting..
Thanks for sharing Cristi…
There must be lot of bushes on the Mars, that’s why they will beat around the bushes and can’t say a simple word…………
Yet more piling on by the women. This is turning out to be a rout!
(whispering quietly) i’m with you dave…
Leonard, where have you been? I’ve been getting drilled here. About time the cavalry showed up.
“I’m sorry” seems to be the most difficult of words to say. I have no problem saying them if I truly have done something to hurt or wrong someone, especially someone that I love.
I wish it could be so easy for me…
Is it because you are still angry and hurt by something the other person did?
Like many things in life, it’s complicated and not black and white.
I know the feeling. I had to find forgiveness toward someone who still has not said they are sorry back to me. In truth, I owed them an apology, but it would be nice if they could say the same thing back to me or even acknowledge my apology and accept it. But I can’t control anyone, but myself. So I will just be content that I said it and meant it. Then move on from there.
Have a fabulous week, David. That’s my plan!
