Hard to Say I'm Sorry

Posted on December 28, 2016 at 2:45 PM

Why is it so hard for us to say "I am sorry. I was wrong. Please forgive me."

We come up with the most pathetic excuses, we play the blame game, we make others look poor or even insult them, we try to see the wrong in them, we even invent all sorts of diseases - all of that simply because we are too proud to admit we were wrong...

Forgive, but not forget?

I've heard so many times now that forgiveness does not mean forget. People who say this just want to keep the backdoor open. Yes it means forget. We should forget what we wanted to forgive - and not let the grudge rest in us in a politically correct version.
