I don't like hearing "I'm sorry" because it's regret, and I don't do well with that. Which is actually why I like the expression "My bad" because at least it's one of accepting responsibility! I would much rather hear, "I won't do it again," or "I'll do it differently next time," then a bunch of "I'm sorrys". Because they make the person saying it feel better - not the injured person. Even asking, "Is there something I can do to make it better for you?" is a better choice, because you are offering to rectify a situation that you caused or created. again, responsibility is the key here. Hey - I think I am totally in to self actualization!~

Sorry doesn't over write everything but it can be of some help, especially when it's a sincere sorry instead of some half hearted ones. Saying sorry is a way of soothing one's emotions and and it should remain as words. Real apologies should appear in the form of actions to the one who has been deeply hurt. No matter how minor our mistakes are, we will know never how much it means to them since we are not in their shoes to know what's going through their mind.

For me it depends on the way the apology is being delivered and the gravity of the offense. If i see the sincerity of the offender and the offense is light, i will forgive. But for heavier offense, i won't talk to you if you outrightly ask for it . Maybe you ask me for it but i will just be silent as to what my answer is.

I know that when someone apologizes for a mistake, all should be forgiven even when that mistake had hurt you. But there are times that I feel that an apology doesn't change the damage or hurt that was done. So like you, it's a yes and no. For me, it depends on how much damage it has done.

It depends on what kind of mistakes they had made. If it was a big serious mistake, i won't forgive him or her with just a word of "sorry". I need they use their deeds and actions to prove their apology.

The problems is for some peoples, it's hard to say sorry for something that they have done. So I would love to hear that word from someone that make mistake to me.

When the person who says sorry with all his heart, then I would forgive that person. But before that, I would not go easy on what he have done. He did wrong thing. He must explain to me well and be sorry for everything.

I think it depends on what the mistake was, but sorry always helps towards forgiveness. If it was a small mistake, saying sorry can make everything better. On the other hand, if its a big mistake then it might take more than just saying sorry. Still, it never hurts to say sorry. At least this is how I feel about it.
