Why does it matter?

You’re right. I’m wrong. I’m sorry.

It’s that word – SORRY.sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry. sorry.
We all say it, and perhaps, some say it more so than others.
Me, I am forever apologizing – and maybe it’s my anxious mind trying to untangle the reasons. Maybe it’s because I get tired of trying to explain my point of view. Maybe it’s because …
maybe, maybe, maybe …

Maybe it could be not because I am wrong – but because I understand and I don’t want to argue. I understand that when you get into a conversation in which conflict arises, you are forever trying to show the other person your reasons. But what if? What if that person could just take a second to look at it from your point of view instead of having that “peripheral” vision? What if that person could just take a step back, just a step, and realize that maybe perhaps, they have misunderstood and could therefore, be wrong?

what if? what if? what if?

What if all it took was simple conversation where acceptance, appreciation, kindness, and gratitude, was all it took? Simple as that? Can it not be that simple, I wonder?
At the end of the day, what is the point of trying to prove your point, if the other person won’t even show acknowledgement? And I am not talking only about relationships here but also friendships, work situations, school situations, court proceedings, etc. etc.
I say don’t overuse the word “sorry”. Accept the fact that you were incorrect about something, truly apologize, and move on.

There will be arguments – perhaps people won’t understand where you are coming from, but it does not mean that you are a bad person. It means that there should be discussion where the issue is discussed in a rational and civil manner.

Apologizing does not always mean you’re wrong and the other person is right. It just means you value your relationship more than your ego.

At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who’s right or who’s wrong. Just be done with it. Figure it out, and be HAPPY! ❤️
