Saying "Sorry"?

Neither you should say “Sorry”, nor should you expect “Sorry” for every mistake. Some mistakes are life changers, where in they do help us in understanding people, life, things in a better way than ever before. One’s knowledge lies in identifying such incidents, and one’s pleasure lies in learning from the same.

Never say sorry to convince someone; never say sorry to convince yourself; rather be happy to say sorry when you are ready to change yourself towards the mistake done.

PS: I know that both of the above said ones are not related to each other, in some way they even contradict with each other. But please note that they are mutually exclusive if we consider the situation they have to be applied.

This is contrary to what has been dinned into our ears since childhood- to say sorry when you hurt someone unknowingly or knowingly.To feel remorse and to let know the realisation of regret is perhaps the right way to restore relationships.I believe one must say Sorry if at fault.

Expecting a sorry is a different matter.It depends on the mental make up, the large heartedness of the individuals and their willingness to overlook hurts.

Nice Pramu that you provided a chance to think about it

Pardon my saying but what I feel is that the word 'Sorry' is the most misused in English language. No matter what blunder we commit, we say sorry. Does that make ammends? The physical wounds may be cured but the wounds created by words don't go away.
I liked reading your post. Thanks for sharing.

and it goes for every word..we should really mean what we say..if we say sorry we should really be sorry.
