Sometimes Sorry Just isn't good enough

A bit over a week ago I ran into a former freind at another freinds place and he apologised to me aqbout the way he had treated me,bare in mind all this took place well over a year ago!he'd ripped me off and caused a lot of trouble for me.He's seem me many times since than and has never bothhered to say sorry, and it seems he's only doing it now cause his health is bad and he needs an operation.And the freind who's place we were at had convinced him to do it I think.She said as much after he left. This guy said if were going to keep being in the same places I had to just put out of my head what had happened. Now I almost feel mad because he just wants to be of the hook.But because of this guy I no longer trust anyone and I've totaly lost my confidence. He went on so much that I said if he really ment why not just try to be a decent freind and he said if he came thru this he would.Do people really change that much?And this man really doesn't seem to have freinds, only people that are some use to him

Hi missbdoll, Forgiveness doesn't come easy for most of us, but it is always best. This doesn't mean you have to set yourself up for him to do the same thing again. If it upsets you to think about what he did to you, it will hurt your health as well. Give him a chance, sometimes people really do change. Blessings.

Sometimes sorry realy dont do the job for you. It depends on the situation that the situation created by you or by some other person is worth saying sorry or not. If you have hurted someone realy deep and hard then saying just a small sorry is not the solution for the problem...... and most of all, If you dont say sorry from the bottom of your heart, then its meaningless and useless. Many people do mistakes, and just say sorry thinking that they have corrected their mistake.... But its not so easy!

Yeahyou are right it looks like he is just cared of his medical condition and he just want make all the bad stuff from past to good one. I don't know what excatly he ripped you off with, but you are right, sorry is sometimes not enough. And I am not sure I can forgive someone like this and just be friend with him. Also it doesn't look like he really mean you to apologize, if someone had to say it to him to do so.
