Do we really mean it when we say that we are sorry? Sorry is a word that so many of us do not take seriously for if we are truly sorry for something we have done to harm another, we would never do it again. How many times have we heard someone say that “I’m sorry” and soon after they do the exact same thing over again?
We now know when this happens, the person really isn’t sorry when they repeat their offense towards another, but only sorry when they get caught again. It is so easy to use this word and have no true feelings about its meaning. Remember that if we forgave the person for their behavior and they repeat it, not only do we feel abused once again but it brings back the first time we accepted their apology and makes us angrier. Sorry is a word that only can be accepted one time and one time only!
