do u think that there is no space for sorry in friendship,,, if there will be no space for sorry then we will do mistakes repeatedly and would not apologise for that and if our friend could do anything.. i think sorry should have first place in friendship..we have to accept our faults and try to convince our friend that we are not going to do that silly mistakes again.........

hmmm not repeatitive sorry i guess for the same mistake done...remmber the diff parts of apology 1. im sorry 2.it is my fault 3. how can i make it up 4. that wont happen again the last 2 part are being ignored by many...saying sorry mean you are really sorry for what you have done and will not do it again in purpose... friends may forgive you repeatedly until they get tired of forgiving and being your friend..

when possible with a friend or not a friend we should apologize when we've done something we regret. we should communicate that we realize it wasn't right what we did or said. and that we don't want to be that way and don't want to do it again.

Of course there has to be room for apologies in a friendship,if there werent there wouldnt be many friendships in existence!we have to take each other warts and all,the good things and the bad things,and if there is an upset we just have to accept that we will need to sort it out in the best way possible.But usually it can easily be sorted out.

no, sorry means "I will not do it again" so there is always sorry in a friendship the word which does not have a place is thank you.

I think sometimes you have to say sorry to other to make your relationship stronger even though you have not done any mistake. Because all persons are not so understandable in all things. and more ever you will not become small in others eye by asking sorry. Instead your reputation will increase. So my advise is use plenty of sorry and thank you in your relationship to make it healthy.

Friends like lovers have to see that each other have faults and yes it good to say sorry.

I think it depends on the friendship, the reason, and the number of times someone must say I'm sorry. We are human and we all have our faults and we all make mistakes. Some things can't be let go....I have been in many of these situations. I have had "friends" that did things that I don't think I can ever forgive them for. Some of the things scared me away and so hurt me so deeply that I can never forget. If one person is always saying I'm sorry over and over again for the same thing, or even for numerous different things, then I say to let it go. Some things weren't meant to be.

Whoever said there is no place for sorry in friendships probably doesn't have many friends. Unless of course they mean that friends forgive without being told "I'm sorry" because it is simply understood. I personally think that a meaningful not an automatic "I'm sorry" goes a long way to healing hurt feelings and misunderstandings
