People will forget

The saying that people will forget the things you have done, but they will never forget the way you made them feel. JUst wondering if this has had an impact on your life in a positive or negative way. Are you honest and have no regrets, or do you regret brutal honestly that can cause hurt feeling to other? I also feel that even when you say that you are sorry people still can't move past it. What do you think?

they will forget what you did.. but they have this wound that will not only disappear but change something in themselves. and that is could be a good change or other wise.. but still most the changes are good that they may realize things that this could a lesson for them not to do things without thinking twice.

It is hard to move past something that hurt you deeply, even if the "offender" is sorry. I always tend to think "sorry for saying it out loud, but you meant it" I have to say that I try to never offend anyone in any way. I know how bad it hurts to be offended, especially by someone you care about. I always say that people don't remember how much money you make, or what you did for a living, people remember the way you treated others, the way you lived your life, and the amount of heart they were able to see.

Well as soon as you invest in another person and feelings are there you can pretty much bank on the fact that they will at some point hurt you. It's just your choice on how you deal with it. Forgiveness is more about you than it is the other person. Just makes me think back on things and it is hard but you cant really change other people. SIGH!

Saying sorry t someone also mean that u have to be serious about it. sometimes people say things just to get it over with, but they do not really mean it and will do it all over again if they had the chanse. It is true that u can forget things, but the feeling of how they made you feel lasts alot longer =)

Your right it needs to be from the heart. I guess it's kind of like how we ask how are you today? People always say fine how are you? But is it really what they feel? Funny isn't it? Thanks and have a great day!
