i would definately say sorry when i am wrong in a situation. i have been in many arguments and i yell and fuss and whatnot, but once i calm down i can't help but realize that i was wromg and i have to apologize or i don't feel right about myself

of course I would. I'm capable of accepting my mistakes and admiting when I';m wrong. only small views people can;'t accept their mistakes and think that they are always right

Yes, I am a person who can easily say sorry if I'm wrong. Even with my children, If I'm wrong, I say sorry but with detailed explanation why I have to do that. Saying sorry should be taught to children as early as possible to make them more sensible of other's feelings!

Yes I would. That's how to learn respect everybody around us. If you accidentally bump someone, of course they will be angry. But then you apologize, he will think back again and will soothe the angry left off. Instead of telling "are you blind"? he will saying " oh it is ok"...Like if you were driving on the streets and u hit some one. Will you keep going?

Absolutely! If I am wrong I definitely would say I am sorry as it is my mistake and I do not consider anyone to be perfect, there fore I can admit to being wrong. It is how we go about correcting the mistakes that matter.

There is a phrase that we use when we make a mistake: “I'm only human.” We're saying that everyone makes mistakes, so what we did is okay. And it is okay, as long as we take personal blame for our wrongdoing. Saying “sorry” but not meaning it or not intending to develop our actions will cause a lack of trust to develop. Saying “I'm sorry” and admitting that we did something erroneous is the first step to self-improvement. Being unable to say sorry is a recipe for a brittle relationship. Saying “I'm sorry” gives a relationships the resiliency to weather both partners' mistakes.

U should do so because it is a matter of times. Sooner or later they will finally find out something fishy that you've done. They could thought you are such a liar or despicable or untrustworthy if u don't confess before the figure out something. :D You should choose the right time to make an apology though because if you just randomly confess to them without learning their emotions... who know what might happen :} Good luck!

I think it's important to say I'm sorry if I've done something wrong. I believe that that simple admission is what keeps problems from festering into something bigger. Plus, a true adult admits their mistakes. I believe if we treated others the way we expect to be treated, that people would get along better. ie: if somebody did something to us, we'd appreciate an honest apology.
