"I AM SORRY" It is just 3 simple words......but many of us find it so difficult to use it....offcourse some of us are quick enough to say that......but have you ever come across this situation.....it happened to me few months back....I had picked up a fight with one of my friend and later we both found out that it was our own respective fault of getting into this fight....we both wanted to apologize and say "I AM SORRY" but the question was who is going to say it first......You may dispose it as ego, self respect,etc.......... But Do you usually take the initiative to go ahead and say sorry ???????? OR You wait for the other person to come and say sorry first and then you will do the needful ???????

I found It is generaly easy to say sorry to a stranger.When face to your friends,your family.It becomes so difficult.Perhaps Psychology can explain clearly.To me ,usually,I will not say sorry.I may invite him or her to a dinner or make an active chat with him or her.After that We can draw back the curtain.

I was in a situation not too long ago where I felt I was in the right and the other was in the wrong. After a few days of thinking about it, I realized we were both in the wrong. I did say the words first, but it was done so in hoping that they too would say the words and mean it. Although, that didn't happen. But, there is still forgiveness. I guess it comes down to motives for saying "I am sorry". Are you truly sorry about what happened? Or are you (like I was in this situation) trying to get something out of it?

I don't usually use the exact same words. I just say 'sorry' most of the time. Sometimes people don't say anything but just raise their hand, like most sportsman do. And it is understood that they are sorry. Most of the time I had to say sorry is when I accidentally bump into others. I am carefull with my words and action so I hardly have to say 'sorry'.
