When you offend somebody

either by way of words or deeds, do you always take apologies from her/him once you realised later that your anger or wrath was mistaken or misdirected?

Often I try to make an apology immediately but if I see that the person's temper is still interfering I let a day or two pass then I would ask for an apology. SOing so makes us have clearer minds and a more accepting heart.

Yes, I would try my best to apologize to someone I unintentionally offended and don't believe that I've every intentionally offended anyone. That's just not my style.

Actually, I would really really feel guilty if I see the person get really offended with what I've said or done. I would just stop and apologize immediately. I have offended quite a number of people already but I can say about 99% (rough estimate) of 'em are unintentional in both concept and delivery. It's a bit different if there are lots of emotions though. I usually just let things cool down for a bit and once heads are clear, I just step in and apologize if I knew I did something offending. I just swallow my pride and admit I made a mistake. But then, if I did offend people in a way that it is true and I just wanted to help. Most likely I wouldn't apologize but would follow up on it with good intentions.

Yes I feel aweful whenever I have offended anyone..Even right now I feel that I vented a bit too much to my friend on here. i will wrote her again tomorrow and make sure that she knows that I value out friendship and sis not mean to hurt or offend her. We are all humane. we are going to make mistakes. All we can do is try to do the right things and Apologise, when we feel in aour hearts that we have done something wrong.

Yes. I always do that. It will make me guilty if I don't. But if someone did something bad for me, I will not talk to that person if that person didn't ask for an apology even if it will be for a lifetime.
