Some people just can't lower down their pride and doesn't want to stoop down and accept that they have done something wrong..Some would easily give their apologies and would even go out of their way to extend it..So, which one are you?

Well, if I am pretty sure that I made a mistake, I would really ask seincere apology. I fyou have done something wrong you felt guilty when you will not apologize. The people who don't apologize maybe think that their mistake is lesser than the other person. And that it's hard to lower their pride when they were offended too. It is tough!! I know how it feels when you are offended but it is also good if we know how to lower our pride and start to apologize. It is hard though.

Of cause if i were wrong i would apologize. It takes a bigger person to admit that they were wrong and apologize, for whatever may have been the wrong doing.

Apologizing makes you a better person! It shows, yes we can err, can overlook something when we are 1st making our point in the discussion. To err is human; to forgive is divine...couldn't let this pass, without saying!

yes, indeed you wouldn't be a good person if you dont know how to accept your mistakes moreso if you dont know how to apologize..And if you think you're wrong, there is nothing bad with apologizing..thanks

First thing, i generally dot't give any room for making apology! In case i am found on the wrong side, never hesitate to offer sincere apology to the person concerned! But will you offer apologees to a person, worth not getting it?

I have no problem apologizing. If I am wrong I will admit it, even if the other people involved haven't realized that I am wrong. Apologizing does no harm to us and usually makes bad situations a lot better very quickly. Those people whose pride or egos will not allow them to apologize are only hurting themselves.

Yes if I was wrong in somethnig I said or done yes I would apologize to that person, and even to my children as we can't always be right all the time. I would swallow my pride and say sorry to anyone, even people i don't like that much.

Although saying apology seems to be hard and embarrassed for me, but if I am wrong, I still have to say it. I love China
