Yes my friend, for me I still haven't said sorry to my 'inner child' the child who suffered so much under tyranny, abuse and bullying from a very young age right up to his teens. This child is still hurting, he's full of anger, hatred and vengeance. Until I can truly comfort him, say sorry to him for what has happened and nurture him and help him grow then he's never be at peace, just like me! Until I can give my inner child peace I have to be stronger, once stronger I can apologize to my inner child and help him grow strong too.

I remember taking my sister out to the pub on her eighteenth birthday many years ago when she was allowed to legally drink. I was meeting some friends of mine at the bar and when we arrived we discovered that sis was not allowed inside without a form of ID which of course we forgot to bring with us! My friends were already inside and I was dying to join them so I didn’t object when a member of the band’s roadies offered to take her home to get her ID. In retrospect I can see how dangerous it was to allow my young sister to go off in a car with a total stranger who could have been a psychopath for all I knew; all because I wanted to party with my friends! My sister got home safe and sound but did not come back to the pub; she was fine and decided to stay home. You know all this happened a real long time ago and I still feel bad about it! I have never said sorry to her for this incident and now it somehow seems too late!

I've so much regret not being able to say sorry to my dad. Y'see , my parents separated when I was just 8 years old. And during the time I stayed with him & my stepmother, there has been a lot of misunderstanding which eventually lead to my leaving them & staying with my mom. We had no communication for at least 10 years. I tried to stand up on my own. I want to have something to show once we get to meet. But only last February, I learned from my half-brother that he passed away December of last year without even meeting my kids. And it feels ugly. So much for pride...

Oh yes, there is. During my childhood years, there used to be a maid we had who had a girl of my age. Since I was an only child and my mom worked, it was arranged that the girl and her mom would stay with us during the day while my mom was away. I’m sure the fault was entirely mine, but I was just so irrationally jealous of that other girl. Everytime my mom would keep something for her, or pay some special attention to her or enquire about her, I would be so insanely jealous and during the day, when mom was not at home, I would be extra mean to that girl. Her mom of course, could never say anything coz she was as it is more than obliged with the arrangement of having her daughter and herself stay with us during the day with all the food and other comforts…I’d take advantage of the situation and belittle her in every way I could think of.
