I have great difficulty in saying sorry, even when I realize that it is my mistake, I resolve in my mind not to repeat it but to go ahead and admit that I am wrong and say sorry is very difficult for me. My friend always rings me an hour later to say sorry whenever we have had an argument, I appreciate his quality but can not develop it even after 20 years of friendship.

sometimes if you do a lot of mistakes it is hard to say sorry. because it is just not an effective ways to do that any way...

I know what you mean, sometimes saying sorry alone is not sufficient, we must also vow not to make the same mistakes again. In India there is saying that this type of sorry is like the elephant bath - after you bathe an elephant he takes sand/mud in his trunk and sprinkles it on his back.

One of my bosses said to me once "Hi, mister, you are loosing anything by telling me "GOOD MORNING". Therefore from that onwards, I made the habit of telling to known people "GOOD MORNING". If you know that you have to say sorry to the others, without any hestiation you should say that. It is basic culture and human courtesy. By hearing your telling them sorry, your image on this increases and not reduces.

Good morning and sorry are two curtsy words that we use every day, even for little things that do not matter, but when you have had an argument then can you bring yourself to admit that you were wrong and say - yes you are sorry.

Yeah, there were times that its hard to say sorry to somebody..but when its close to you and you don't want the person to be hurt more...i should have to make peace and say sorry. Its a great feeling being sorry as well.

That is a very good reason to say sorry, to make peace with others as well as with yourself, and it is easier to sorry to those you love.

I usually say sorry to friends. I sometimes say sorry even if I fee that the fault is not mine. It really helps to ease the tension betwen friends. Somehow I am a bit stingy in saying sorry to my spouse. Should learn that

You are a large hearted person, wish I could also forget my ego sometimes and learn to say sorry.
