Why do sometimes people find it hard to say sorry? Is it because of pride? Actually, i had a guy bestfriend before. But because of a small issue, we had a fight. I know that i've done nothing wrong but still i wanted to say sorry because he's my friend and i don't want to lose our friendship.

It seems like girls say sorry easier then guys. I had this one girl who liked me, and everything she did wrong she would apologize. I didn't like it though cuz she didn't even need to! It made the word have less significance when she said it. I am careful when to say sorry or not. Your right though some people have too much pride and are too stubborn to ever use sorry. I only use it when I feel I need too. Sorry maybe the single most hardest word, but a lot of words or phrases fit into the same category. Such as I appreciate it, I love you, etc. If that made any sense lolz.

Well that makes sense. I got your point. Can i ask you something? Im curious why is it guys find it hard to say how they feel? Aside from because it's their nature, can you explain it to me a little deeper? I suppose your a guy right?

I find that saying sorry is easy to anyone but friends. Why? In my mind, friends are friends. I can bear their mistakes or why I choose them friends at first. After all, every one has his own faults. He or she is my friend for we have something in common. Generally there is no need to say sorry. Saying sorry often maybe means that we are not friends. Off course, you can say you are.

No I don't think it's that hard... If you've done something wrong you have to be man / woman enough to admit it. I think it's harder to say: Here's the money I owe you :-D

If I have done something wrong or made a mistake, I will apologise. There are some people I know that just can't seem to say it though. They always think they are right or they haven't done anything wrong.

It isn't hard in the first place though PRIDE can be an enemy. It depends on how high you PRIDE level is. The higher it is, the harder for the person to say SORRY. He won't even think an apology is necessary.

For me, sorry is not the hardest word. I mean c'mon! IT'S JUST A WORD! You can say it to any people you like in any given time and place even though you didn't commited any mistakes. There's no such thing as "The Hardest Word". It's just the person who are trying to say it that completely makes the situation more complicated. It's not the word but the person who makes it hard! Hope my comment will not reflect as a negative one! I just stated my own opinion, that's all! God Bless - Ron Reyes www.ronreyes.co.nr
