Is it hard to say "Sorry"?

honestly I only say "sorry" when I think at is my fault...but I don't say it when I think it is not my fault and I have nothing to do with it...Saying "sorry" is like admitting that it is your fault and ready to face your consequences...For some it is really hard to say this word...because I think they are coward... Are you brave enough to say "sorry"? When do you say it? When was the last time you said it? How does it feel? Is it really hard to say "sorry"?

I have a habit of saying sorry specially to the Juniors at my office ..."If i have made any mistake"...this way i feel i am human too and anyone who makes mistakes... i keep a heart to forgive that person too... it also helps me to stay down to earth and realise and improve in what i may have done something wrong and would not want to do something wrong in similar passion

I think it's hard for anybody to admit when they are wrong and then be big enough to actually come out and say you're sorry. I know it's really hard for me. It may take me a few days after the fact to come to terms with me being wrong about something but I always try to sincerely apologize for my mistakes.

Not really especially when you know it's your fault. Sometimes pride is a big hindrance on saying sorry. My bf is not used of saying it which made me more mad. He would usually hug or kiss me when he made a mistake but to utter the words sorry is very difficult for him. I mean just say it...it's a very simple but very meaningful word. He's a little insensitive too that's why he don't know when he did something wrong already.

some people find it difficult to say sorry at times i think it depends on their emotional state and how emotional they are as a person, it can also depend on the situation and why there is a reason for them to be saying sorry and also they may have been brought up to say sorry when they should and others may not have had this experience.

I second your opinion. I would never say sorry if I feel what I did was right. I maintain a high level of self respect, but if the receiving party is one of my best friend, I don't mind bowing down in front of them. Because they mean a lot to me.

I don't think so as far as I am concerned. But seeing others I have found out that it is really a difficult task for many. You always find it a difficult task if you have an ego problem......

some people are not just comfortable in admitting that they did something wrong. so, instead of saying sorry, they pretend that they haven't done anything wrong. i do ask for forgiveness whenever i realize that i hurt someone. i don't want to be rude to people. i do have my pride but i believe that pride should not always be on top of my head. so, whenever i commit mistakes, i always try to ask for forgiveness. so sad that other people always feel superior than others. and that their pride always holds their good side back.

It's not hard to say sorry at all especially when you know that it's your fault. Admitting your mistakes doesn't make you less of a person. I think a person should apologize if they know they hurt someone's feeling and if they did something wrong. I do always apologize to lessen the hurt that I've caused and it would make me feel better than I acknowledged my mistakes.

I AM not kind of person regularly say sorry for others in each and every thing. If i am so wrong I say sorry , and if somenody tell "hey you did bad thing like that.. I think and find , is this my fault?" if I am wrong I say sorry otherwise i wont.. but some people use say it each and every paragrapgh.. it s funny some times the eay they saying like this.. but I know saying sorry is not funny think, except than coward.

well, it's not nice to say sorry because it's just already a habit of yours. atleast admit you are sorry if you really know what mistake you had done. ask only for forgiveness if you really mean it. not just because you have to.

My wife doesn't like to say sorry for ANYTHING. Even when it's her fault. Sometimes though...she does. I use to think it was a little screwed up for her not to but I analyzed it and now I understand why she doesn't. You see...I say sorry for EVERYTHING. I always mean it. She only says sorry when it's really neccessary...like when she does something really ba, or she was really really wrong. When that happens, it means a whole lot to me. With me...since I say sorry for everything, when I say sorry for something really bad or really wrong, it doesn't mean as much to her. It's like a double edge sword where if you say sorry too much it sucks but if you say sorry too little it sucks too. How can you say sorry at the right times?That's my question...

I think when you say sorry with all your heart that is the perfect time to say sorry...don't say sorry a lot, for it to have meaning

it's not hard to say sorry at all, when u're wrong. Infact, if u realise u've made a mistake, and u don't say sorry, that's hard for me, but ofcourse, i would never apologise just to get out of an argument, or for any other reason when it's not my fault. then saying sorry is hard but then u don't have to say it anyway.

I know it is hard to say sorry, but sometimes it is necessary to say sorry. If you feel regret for one, pls say sorry, becuase it means you have the willing to responsible for yourself. In my country, anyone feel the face is impirtant and hard to say sorry, they think if do so, they will lose face.

I think it's better to say sorry than be sorry at the end. Nothing will be lost if you say it...even if you don't have to. And it's some kind of a great feeling when you are relieved by saying sorry.
