It is the dearest people and these attitudes remain as a bloody wound Whenever I asked the ticket of of the new blood of thy But .. Comes when a loved one you have already caused the wound But now regrets what he has done and I felt the credibility of his feelings But enough to cause you pain and heartburn keep you alone is unable Of continuing in the tender ..

I once had this feeling and it really hurts when my best friend and my boyfriend seeing out each other... they lied in front of me.. my best friend know how much i loved my boyfriend but still she betrayed me..It takes me a year before I accepted their apology.. Saying sorry is not enough.. SORRY is just a word. Time really heals everything. If you feel that its time to let go and forgive the one who hurt you then you're free to accept their apology...

Apologizing for a big mistake especially for something that really hurt us a lot will ease the pain. It will help ease the pain that we could be experiencing due to someone hurting us but the wound would heal in time depending on our own way of coping with the hurt and how we perceive it. But for me, the bigger the hurt, the longer it takes time to heal. Like all wounds, emotional wounds may heal and that the word sorry can help a little bit especially if it's accompanied with sincere actions of making up for the pain. But even emotional wounds can leave scars and scars can open again into a wound if you'd be hurt the same like you were before.

Depends on a number of variables; What does the hurt person believe about forgiving? What does the person saying sorry relates to you? What was the event and how serious it was? Was the incident has caused the hurt person? Is it an irreversible loss or ....? How long it took the person to say sorry and realize the wrong doing? (Time is a big healer)

everyone is special and they would take the word sorry in a different way, some people might believe the word and forgive the wrong doer, other people might not give second chances at all.The majority of people these days do not take the word sorry seriously as it is tossed around a lot these days.

Saying sorry does not really erase the wound of what you have done especially if it's very severe. But it does make sense and give contribution to start the healing quick. People tend to forgive but they have hard time forgetting what you done to them. It takes a lifetime to repair a broken trust or heal a broken feelings. So while you can don't broke anybody's heart or don't do any stupid mistake. The wound will forever leave a scar, it might heal temporarily but be careful to not do the same mistake again or you will only make the wound fresher and it's not good. Sometimes people keep repeating the same mistake expecting to be forgiven over and over again. Sigh,too sad.

No it may not erase the wound- since what's done is done ,but it can make up for it, if saying sorry is wholeheartedly and sincerely done by the person. It can ease the pain.

I don't think the word sorry erases the wound that someone may have caused us or we them. It does however help to mend the relationship. Saying sorry we should take seriously when we are saying these words we mean that we will try not to do or say the thing that we did that caused pain. We shouldn't just say it to just be saying it. It should have meaning to us because it has meaning to the person we are saying it to or vice versa.

Welcome to the mylot family my dear friend MirageOFhope! No i don't believe that sorry would erase everything but that shows that the person who said it is considering that fact that he/she has made a mistake and they are not afraid of admitting that i public. They said sorry not for the mistake because they didn't want to really hurt you but maybe they did it just by mistake. I think that is what that really counts if you ask me! There was a story about this. Once upon a time a man had a son who used to commit mistakes so many times again and again. So the man told that for every mistake he would drive a nail in a pillar in their house. Soon the son saw that the nails were increasing. He changed and the nails were removed until one day there were no holes. Man was happy but he saw son sad and he asked why was he sad then the son said " The nails are gone dad but the holes remain". I really liked this story and i believe it's the same which happens when we say sorry! Cheers!

sorry does not completely erase the wound but it can loosen the hurt a little bit. Actions are louder than words and so I think that if the person is really sorry then his actions should imply that he really is.

No the word "Sorry" probably may not completely heal the wound, but when somebody say sorry, it means they now realize the damage they have done, completely aware of the fact that how terribly it hurts you, though they cannot do it alright yet they heartfully want you to forgive them because they are going through the real punishment feeling sorry for what they have done to you. And forgiving someone is the most generous act.

actually, it doesn't. The wound happens even before the person says sorry. However, when someone says sorry to you, at least you can say to yourself secretly that "HA! See, I was right and you were wrong!", no, just kidding. When someone says sorry to me, I feel better even if the damage has been done because I know that the person and I can be okay again. It also makes me feel better because saying sorry is a hard thing to do and when a person does so, it means that the person makes a great effort. Don't focus on what the person did wrong after the apology, focus on the happy things to come.

Not really, I always remember one line that my professor always say, "IF WE ACCEPT SORRY, HOW ABOUT THE DAMAGE". What do you think? Maybe somehow sorry is what the best we can do to lesser the pain that we do to others. We must always try not to do bad things to hurt someone, because in the end, what we always do is to say sorry only. If we are made mistake to someone, try not to do it again to other also.

Sorry does not erase the wound, but it is an acknowledgement from the other party that he/she has done wrong.Pain eases with time.Wounds heal like any other.Regrets pulls a person down.It's best to start anew and push forward.

Welcome to Mylot Mirage! Sorries dont erase the wound. I for one, though appreciate it when someone apologizes to me as this would mean that he acknowledges his fault and accountability to me. A sincere apology gives someone as assurance that it would not happen again but just the same, it doesnt erase it; which makes me all the more be amazed with Christ's mercy. He easily forgets our sins but we humans dont forgive and forget that easily.

I guess not... It does help heal the wound, though. Wounds heal and become scar to remind us of the lessons we have learned from it. :)

In my opinion, the word sorry doesn't erase the wound nor cover the pain that you've felt. You will always remember the heartache because your brain will consider it as a traumatic event. No matter how sincere his sorry is, it doesn't change the fact that he had hurt you and can still hurt you.

The word sorry can only ease the angriness if it really comes from the speaker's heart; not just saying because it is inevitable.
