Apologies

Plinky asked if I thought I deserved an apology that I had yet to receive. Really? Is there one human being on the planet that isn’t going to answer yes to this question? If so please step up and raise your hand because you are the most unique individual I have ever met!

Come on…it is impossible to go through life without finding ones self getting their feelings hurt by another. It’s part of the growing process we must all go through isn’t it? If I had to stop and consider all the apologies I felt I deserved or all the apologies I should have made, I would have no time to think about anything else.

Yes, there are things that have happened in my life that would warrant someone apologizing to me, but isn’t it really me who must make the choice to either wait or just get pasted it? And the same is true of those waiting for my apology.

I guess for me it’s simple…if I don’t get the apology I think I deserve then I just find a way to move past it for my own sanity not theirs. It can sometimes take me a very long time to do that but in the end its not worth the effort if its not really meant anyway.

There is an old saying…You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink…you can drowned him if you like but then aren’t you just left walking without a horse?

  1. LOL I love how everyone wants this question both ways. It didn’t ask if you got the apology, it asked if you felt you deserved one you didn’t get and like I said there is not one person that can answer no to that question. 🙂

  2. I think I can honestly answer no.
    Yes, there have been times when I felt I deserved an apology for something done wrong to me, but if I didn’t get one I just chalked it up to the fact that the offender is not really sorry. After the short period of time where real remorse for their actions could live…they would only be apologizing to appease me, or to make themselves feel better for being an ass…in which case, I don’t want it.
