What's the big deal about saying "SORRY"??


"Sorry."

"I am sorry."

"I am sorry for you."


What is the big deal about apoogising to someone? Why do we make it such an ego hassle? OK I realise I did/said something stupid, then why does apologising for it become such a big fuss. It really isn't all that difficult. It’s just a word. It won’t make u big, or make me small. I’m allowed to make mistakes, and so are you. Why apology can’t be taken in the same harmless way is something that I fail to understand. I have so many times been coaxed into saying sorry, the recent line that was used being –“you be the bigger person and apologise.” Dude hello! I don’t want to be the bigger person. Not interested.

There are times when I do apologise even when I know I'm not wrong. But that is just to set things straight. If one word can remove so much negativity, then why not? Instead of blowing it up so much, it’s a better option to say sorry when need be. Or maybe later you’ll end up feeling ‘sorry’ for yourself.

The former is what everyone knows, not many realise the latter. :)

True!
Sorry is indeed a magic word!
You know Nivedita ma'am naa?
Whenever I did something wrong and said sorry, she was like, "I don't want to hear a sorry! Sorry doesn't undo what you did!"
And whenever I didn't, she used to say "You don't even have the courtesy to say sorry!"
SCREWED from both sides, I tell you!
