Yes, a person who humbly accepts his mistakes know how to say "sorry" under any given situation. I said it many times in appropriate circumstances in my life and I do not regret any. I achieved the peace of mind I wanted and at the same I had been given the proper forgiveness. so both of us had inner peace for ourselves too.

Hi Genericbe: I like your point of view and that's exactly what I think about this issue and what i say in almost all of the time. I will not have peace in my mind if i knew that i have done something wrong and that it deserves to say I'm sorry and I don't do it simply because of my pride. I think that's not ok. Thanks for your answer. Hope you are having a nice day. Merry Christmas/ Happy Holidays. Take care. -Alvaro.

Happy new year! I also agree with your opinion too. "Sorry" is necessary for our life. If everyone says sorry for his mistake, his life will be more peaceful and happy.

I am usually quite open to admitting my mistakes, and am ok with saying sorry. However, there are instances when I've been pig headed, and I still keep wondering why. :) But such instances are rare, and they relate to one or two individuals, or types of individuals.

I dont think it is always to calm the situation that I've used the word, though I do know several instances when I have done it solely for that purpose, knowing fully well I am right. But mostly, when I say sorry, I mean it. I mean to say I stand corrected.

Hi legendforever4 , There are many times I have had to say I am sorry. Sometimes people respect you more too when you offer an apology. I have an in-law I have bumped heads with so to speak a few times in the past. About 2 years ago I made a stupid mistake with the locking mechanism of my driver's side door on our car. When I pulled in to pick up my wife, I forget what was said, but I gave a curt answer that hurt an in-law. I soon felt impelled by God to apologize. So I called her and did. My son told me that helped his wife to think better of me. That's not the point though. The object is to have a better relationship with my daughter-in-law, striving for peace and mutual respect.

Hi legend, The word ‘sorry’ is very meaningful one and I don’t think we can often use the word. But people are using the word very often. I really appreciate your attitude; you are not using the word often that means you are doing very less mistakes. I don’t mind to ask a sorry if I realized my mistakes. Otherwise I won’t ask a sorry. If I did the mistake then definitely I apologize.

I think I have apologized a lot of time. It's not that I treat "sorry" as something easy but everything I did something wrong, I think it's more appropriate to apologize rather than giving a sorry look but said nothing about it. For example, when I am late for an appointment, or when I thought I said something wrong, weird or bad. Maybe it's because I am more prone to think that I am the one in the wrong and thus, I will apologize to people as I think it's the best way to resolve issues which are in a deadlock.

i had worst experiences with the word sorry, because whenever i admit my mistake and say sorry, people take chance to blame me for everything, or they will sit on our head. what i hv decided is to say sorry only to parents. if i did any thing wrong and pointed by anyone, just to keep quiet.

I am not the type of person to say the word "sorry", even though deep inside I've always wanted to. There were times when I hated myself for letting time slip by without me having apologized. I'm not indifferent; I am just shy to let it out. Good thing is I try to make less mistakes, whether major or minor ones. A handful of mistakes is way better than a bucketful of sorries. I'm gonna make it one of my New Year's Resolutions to be more vocal when apologizing.

I must admit that it is difficult for me to say sorry. If I am wrong, I will feel sorry but these two simple words are still difficult for me to say. Usually I will do something to show my sorry, rather than saying it by myself. I know it is not so good. I love China

Hi, legendforever4. Yes, I have had to tell someone that I was sorry for something that had happened or for something that I have done to them. I don't like to say I am sorry over and over to this same person because then they may start to think that I am not that sorry after all. The word sorry should only be used when it is meant to be. Not when a person just feels that it has to be said just because they have done something wrong.

Hi legend forever: It takes me a long time to admit that i made a mistake but I know when to say sorry. It hurts a little bit but it's important to say this because we are human beings and we can make mistakes. He need to be brave enough to admit that he have done something that was no good, it costs I know and it's not very easy but you feel better when you do this in my opinion. Thanks for asking me this question. Hope you are having a nice day. Merry Christmas/ Happy Holidays. Take care. -Alvaro.

legendforever4 occasionally when I made a boo boo I said sorry but not a lot. I am usually not making blunders that I need to say sorry for. I am surely not going to number any such thing. I do not count my sorrys, as there are not all that many.

people have issues with my not saying sorry just to make others happy. what's the point of an apology if it isnt honest? even if i know it would end any problems i refuse to say sorry unless i beleive i actually did wrong another person. that's why when someone tells me sorry i can honestly say i know when it is just said to end any dispute or said because it is a real apology. but i say sorry a lot when it comes to bumping into people or other such things.. like a reflex..

In my case I do tend to say sorry a lot. Maybe it's just the way I was brought up. I was trained that in any way that a mistake is done, either intentional or not it is right to say sorry. A simple apology could go miles. It can be a big thing and it honestly heals wounds. When someone offends me, a simple sorry is enough for me to forgive someone. And it's Christmas, it's the best time to repent and say sorry... MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE :)
