Just say sorry.

>> Tuesday, November 10, 2009

I don't know what happened. Things were going so well today and then we got into a blame shifting argument. I remember a friend told me, "Sometimes all you have to say is sorry. Then leave it. This way is so much more sincere than, I'm sorry...(and then reasoning for why you did what you did, or what they did that caused you to...). It's so much more powerful to hear, "I'm sorry" (silence). It is also an argument defuser. But it is hard to do. That's probably why they say it takes a strong or bigger person to say I'm sorry. It's even harder to say it first.
