January 21, 2010


Do you sometimes wish that you could apologize to the people you've hurt in the past?

Or apologize for your own behavior?

Without looking like a jerk?

Or are you frightened that it would only bring up old wounds and memories that should be best left forgotten?

That with your new persona and appearance, it is unnecessary to ask for such forgiveness because you are - as you claim and as they believe-,

a 'Whole New You'?

But somewhere, deep inside, you feel a tug, a nagging, of that regret

a glimmer of remorse,

whenever you hear news pertaining to that past

that person,

And it takes all of the strength within you to calm down those rush of emotions

To not bring up that anger or hurt, jealousy or spite

So you click the 'X' mark on that page and turn around

Wiping away all thoughts

And beginning again.

subhanallah..
you took the words outta my mouth.
depending on the person really, but ive apologized, but it was hard.. things can never be the same anymore between me and that person. i guess we've both moved on, we don't talk anymore. it's better off. that's life, we move on and find different people along the way, with time everything changes.

I know what you mean. Sometimes writing an email is easier then in person. I try to apologize and preety much clear the air whether I was at fault or not.

Nevin: In total agreement; even if we've apologized, the air changes and as you've said, things aren't the same. We're just going to have to accept it.

Amira: I'm glad you're straightforward when apologizing, in the end, life goes on.

Artistic Logic: You are very welcome.

My pride gets in the way of a true apology sometimes. I have to change that.

I get defensive about apologising.
But apologising is good.
