Do you find it hard to apologize when you have offended someone? It’s not always easy but is worth the effort to maintain a healthy relationship.

It's Not Easy to Utter Those Words

Whether said to your child, friend, spouse or anyone else, saying "I'm sorry" is not always easy. It's even harder when you don't think you've done anything wrong to the individual. But then there are times when you know that you were wrong. Is it pride that keeps you from apologizing or just downright stubbornness? Refusing to apologize could end up hurting you in the long run and even possibility ruining a relationship. Here are reasons why it is important to say I'm sorry.

It Frees You Up From Carrying All that Guilt that Festers Inside

While it may not be easy to apologize it frees you up from bearing an unnecessary burden that could easily be remedied by those two words.

It Shows that You Respect the Other Person

By owning up to something that you did whether intentional or not shows that you respect and value that individual as a person.

It Allows the Relationship to be Salvaged and Restored

People don't normally hurt or offend someone for the fun of it. When you are made aware of the offense make it right and nip the situation in the bud.

It Frees your Conscience

Wouldn't it be sad to carry a grudge without the opportunity to apologize if someone has passed away? That would be a hard pill to swallow knowing that things were left unsaid when there were ample chances to make things right.

It Allows you to Move on Past the Offense thus Preventing the Seeds of Bitterness to Take Root

When something is not dealt with in a timely manner it can cause unnecessary turmoil and guilt. Stop the growth.

Switch Shoes

Imagine if you were in the other person's shoes. Wouldn't you want the same courtesy extended to you? And if someone is unwilling to accept your apology you can rest in the fact that you tried to make things right. It is than that person who has to deal with the consequences of a broken relationship.

That's sound advice! Having just been in a situation like this with another Wikinutter, I appreciate the need to say sorry for hurt caused even when one does not believe that one stepped out of line in the first place.

Me and my husband have been trying for a baby for over three years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 8 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com I copied the email and I sent him a mail he replied me and I told me all my sorrow is over, but after three years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Dahiru, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done, he then told me that I should wipe my tears with such comforting words he told me to buy some items that his going to use to cast the pregnancy spell I did and he made the spell for me and told me when next I meet with my husband I we conceive,at first I thought it was a scam but I just followed my inner mind and I sent the money for him to buy all the items after some months I went to check with my doctor and I was 4weeks pregnant, thanks to Dr Dahiru spell temple,I want to use this medium to tell everyone having similar problem. contact him via email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine,

Without DR DAHIRU a lot of people would have been dead through heart break. My case is not different from heart break, I am married woman with 3 kids and there was a time when i was having problem with my husband because he was having an affair outside our marriage and this was making me feel bad. So i tried finding solution to my problem by reading a lot of relationship tips on the internet and that was how i came in contact with DR DAHIRU contact details and through the help of DR DAHIRU at arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com my husband left the girl he was having affair with and he came back to me and our kids. After a job well done by DR DAHIRU i felt that it will be unfair if i keep this secret to myself and that is why i am going to drop the contact details of DR DAHIRU right now,or you can also reach him via this email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com

An amazing testimony on on how i conceive, also cure from fibroid, i wonder why people still don't believe that roots and herbs are very essential and fruitful in different aspect, especially when you can't conceive and bear children. I am a living witness because I tried all I could to be pregnant but all to no avail, on this faithful day, i decided to check the net for updates on healthy living and i came across testimonies of lot of women who Priest Babaka has helped with his native herbs to conceive. i decided to put a try because this has been my greatest problem in life so I emailed Priest Babaka, and he told me what to do which i did, after which he sent me some roots and herbs syrup and gave me step by step guild lines on how and when to have sex with my man. I missed my menstrual flow within a short period of taking it, and the doctor confirmed that I am pregnant. I am very glad to tell the world that I just put to bed a bouncing baby boy last week. Contact Priest Babaka for your own testimony via Email: babaka.wolf@gmail.com Or Facebook at priest.babaka
