Yeah, you wondering whom i’m apologizing to or whom is apologizing to me. Right? Well, none of the two scenarios above is taking place. Just felt like wrting on this topic.
Ok, when last did you apologize to someone? Is there somebody out there who whom you should apologize to but your pride is stopping you?
Apologies and corrections. No-one likes them. We all are human, and only the lowliest of human beings will derive pleasure in always being on the wrong and apologizing every time. I’m not saying there’s something bad being on wrong. But, must you be wrong every time?
Human beings are averse to saying sorry, it’s a normal thing but must we sacrifice friendship on the altar of pride?
Many fruitful friendship out there not living to fruition simply cos one party or both are being obstinate and refusing to say simple ‘I’m sorry’. Well, it’s not so simple. Considering nature and the rest.
Coming to the feminine chauvinism issue, it’s only a narrow-minded person that will be of mind that the female species are the weaker vessels and should always be on the apologizing side. Like seriously, we are in the 21st century and , those behaviours , are so 18th Century.
But, it’s not really their fault to another extent because, if the feminine ones that allow the domination can speak out for their self, rather than accept it with a meek faith that they indeed are the weaker ones, then i’m of no doubt that the guy involved, would think twice before he put forward rubbish to her another time.
Apologizing, doesn’t signify being weak, it only shows that perhaps you simply just want to move forward or you are mature enough to understand that you can never always be right. Saying sorry, goes beyond just saying sorry. Saying sorry doesn’t mean there isn’t guilt and forgiving doesn’t mean the pain is gone. Being sorry is the highest act of selfishness, seeing value only after discarding it. The highest form of immaturity is knowing you are wrong and still being hot-headed and refusing to say sorry.
In summary, Doomed are the hotheads! Unhappy are they who lose their cool and are too proud to say, ”I’m sorry.”
