All humans make mistakes. Howsoever intelligent, wealthy, or experienced, we might be; we all make mistakes. Sometimes we realize our faults and sometimes we don’t. But at the end of the day, we end up making mistakes because none is perfect; God created us to go through this.
Some of our mistakes hurt don’t hurt anyone else but our interest. Sometimes, we do a few things knowingly or unknowingly that hurt others. That is the time to apologize. Why do many of us apologize immediately, and why others avoid it? Why do many of us say sorry even for an insignificant hurt, while some of us wait for ages to say it after committing gigantic blunders? That is a mystery.
It all depends on our way of thinking, our upbringing, our humility, our sense of right and wrong, and our opinion on other’s feelings and so on. But do we become smaller by saying sorry? Are we confessing a blunder by saying sorry? Are we hurting our ego by saying sorry? Certainly not.
We may feel better when saying sorry. When we say sorry, we feel good, the other party feels good. By saying sorry, we are not making a mistake of confessing a blunder and putting ourselves to the risk of ridicule, but saying that- look here, I made this mistake, and I am very sorry for that. Please forgive me and let us be friends again.
An apology makes us a better person by cleansing us of our guilt. Let us all say sorry as soon as we realize that by any act of ours, we have hurt someone even if the hurt is insignificant. If the mistake is bigger, our apology should match it to bring matters back to normal.
Let always apologize, we make a mistake and make someone happy again and get happiness in return.
