I always loved the words to Elton John’s songs and the title of this blog is one of his songs, beautiful words.
Sorry can be a tall order. It takes a lot to have to swallow your pride to admit that you are in the wrong.
I mean, I don’t want to be the one to always have to say I am sorry, especially if I am not in the wrong, but sometimes that is the only way to make the peace.
Sometimes we must let others take responsibility for their actions and not be the one who always plays the martyr.
Children need to learn about accountability, or they will spend their whole lives blaming somebody else for what they have done wrong.
I know when I have done some one wrong, and once I have dealt with my demons, I will then be able to apologise for what I have said or done.
If they forgive me that’s all good if they, can’t it’s still all good, at the end of the day I have done my part.
Sorry, has become a very common word in my vocabulary today, as with the challenges of my health, I have zero tolerance or patience, I find I must catch myself when I find that a person has a habit that irritates me. I can’t just let it go because it would go against anything I stand for.
I have no reason to be around people who do irritating things, I spend a lot of time on my own educating myself and trying to be a better person and live a better life. I run away from ignorance and negativity when it tries to take over.
Patience, my weakness, I don’t suffer fools gladly, I believe that people should respect you and your space and keep out your face. I am not afraid to apologise but I will not say sorry when you are the cause of my stress and provocation.
My apology does not stretch as far as apologising for being me or for something I do not believe I did wrong, but I will take accountability for my wrongs.
To apologise for something, you consciously did wrong to somebody makes you a better person, but do not feel the need to apologise for someone else’s fault.
In everything there must be a balance.
