Recently I have been saying I am sorry a lot. It's neccesary when you reach a moment in dealing with a person or situation in which you have either hurt or created a problem. It's nice to realize when you have erred in judgement, reaction or treatment of another. Admitting being wrong gives you a chance to learn, grow and see things from other's perspectives. I typically feel first and think later- in maturing I realize every feeling does not need to be expressed or acted on. My mind stays calmer and focused on the big picture versus being distracted, bogged down in minutia and scrambled.

So if tempted to apologize or let your pride control situations, make that apology, acknowledge your responsibility in what has transpired and then move on.

Who do you want to say sorry to today? Who could you forgive so you could be free to be happy?
