Do you say/show you're sorry?

Hi everyone, How well do you admit, or recognize, you're wrong. I recognize it a bit more often than I admit it (which is very bad) sadly. But I'm aware of that so I'm working on it. How about you?

I too attempt to admit when I am wrong and do my best to correct the problem if needed. It is very hard to do, but I have learned that just owning up to it and suffering the consequences right away is actually an easier way out than just ignoring it and I learn more in the process. I have learned to work on owning up to, correcting, and learning from mistakes in the workplace and have tried to apply this to my personal life as often as I can.

That is very good, I'm happy you have learned those things and are brave in facing things. I have been trying to do the same. :)

I have no problem saying I'm sorry if I've done something wrong or wronged someone somehow. There's a quote that I like from Winston Churchill (I believe it was him that said it). "Eating words never gave me heartburn." Not verbatim, but you get the point.

That is a good quote. I know that not saying sorry, at a time I should have, has actually made me feel sick before. :(

if i've done something wrong i really accept my mistakes. especially if ive done something wrong with the one i love. i send her/him a note to say how sorry i am. Or there are times that i would arrange a date to make it up to them.

Well, saying sorry is never easy, especially when we are faced with some one who's close to us, including family members.. haha =D MOst of the time, we will show that we are sorry, but saying it, seems to be an impossible task, because we have already taken them for granted.. haha =D BUt imagine, when we are faced up to strangers or bosses at work, colleagues etc, sorry just comes out from us so easily.. haha =D

Alot of people don't like to admit when they're wrong.I try to,so I have to say sometimes,even though I know when I'm always wrong in my mind.I do need to admit it every time though.

Usually when I'm at fault I kept quiet. But as I grew older I learned that to be able to have a good working relationship with others one must know how to say sorry when at fault. I heard a speaker discussing what a sincere apology must be? First, one must recognize one's fault, second aplogogize with sincerity and third mistakes should be corrected and avoided from re-occuring.
