I know that forgiveness is a powerful thing. But I don't think I understood how big apologizing can be.
Someone called me up and said sorry for something I didn't think they had realized they'd done.
I was so stunned I could barely say, "Apology accepted"
As a matter of fact, I kinda felt guilty for thinking them incapable of realizing the harm done.
Saying "I'm sorry" or admitting a wrong is the fastest way to diffuse or deflate a situation.
Many times those words are all the bruised party needs to hear in order to move on and renew the relationship.
So why is it so hard to say sorry? I don't know.....but I'm glad she did, cause it made a world of difference to me.
