What do you all think?

Ok…here is another lil quote:

“If the word ‘sorry’ needs to be said more than once for the same reason, it should never have been said in the first place.”
— The truth

Now…I get the sentiment.  It is stating that we ought to be sincere and deep in our repentance for when we have transgressed someone or something.

But:  I strongly disagree that once is enough, and if you say it more than that you weren’t sincere the first time.

“Sorry” is a power word…and as a power word it has power to heal.  When spoken in the proper attitude, it will heal, and heal and heal.  And when the healing is complete, why “sorry” withdraws the field and awaits the next battle.

What I am trying to say by that, is that sometimes we are totally sorry for what we did, and totally inept at expressing it to the one(s) we are sorry to.  Sometimes the things we are sorry over are deep and very hurtful things that one sorry is like one bucket of water poured onto a house afire…the issue is not with the water, the issue is with the bucket!

Constance…turn away from seeming truisms that are tricky and assuage our innate laziness in relationships!  Follow your heart, and speak in love!  Too much love is better than not enough, and when it has been enough sorry’s everyone will know…capisce??  Capisce!!

  1. I believe that there are some incidences when more than one “sorry” is in order.

    I also think the context of the “sorry” impacts whether more than one is too many. If the sorry is following the same action time and time again then yes, maybe that first one wasn’t quite since.

    On the other hand, if it’ something that you feel deeply and the additional “sorry” or two are related to that same original event- then yes, I think it’s perfectly acceptable to offer more than one. And that those apologies are completely sincere.

    Love that photo- 🙂

    Agreed.
