Sorry seems to be the hardest word

Sorry seems to be the hardest word

Do you find it difficult to say sorry? It’s true: sorry seems to be the hardest word.

Or perhaps you wait patiently and longingly to hear that word. The power of an apology can make a huge difference in relationships between people. But as Elton John so beautifully sang “Sorry seems to be the hardest word”.

There are times when we don’t get it right. We are moody, miserable or angry and we might take that out on someone we love, or anyone that happens to be in our way. If we feel vulnerable we might attack other people or blame them unnecessarily. These actions are unfair and can be abusive to others. We usually know in the back of our minds that what we did was wrong. But to admit that is another thing. It is easier to carry on regardless or ignore the feelings of those we have hurt. Lets face it if we say sorry we are admitting our own failures or shortcomings.

When you are the person that feels hurt by the actions and behaviours of another it can feel confusing and upsetting. You may think you don’t deserve it and you begin to question yourself.

Maybe, the other person does not realise how you feel. If they knew would they be happy about it?
