I just don't understand why people still wants to justify when they are saying sorry.
We don't justify why we are sorry. Guilt is never to be reasoned. Forgiveness is a product of common civic value, a by product of humility. Apologies are never to be followed by proud excuses.
We are humans, we are bound to make mistakes. Error prone. When we do make mistakes, we feel sorry about them, and the guilt creeps in. And we seek for forgiveness. That is part of humanity and that is all about being a mortal. We have feelings.
We don't say "I'm so sorry for what I've done, but really, I want you to know that I did it because of I don't respect you bla bla bla.."...
Seriously, that was horrible. I doubt the sincerity of the plead for forgiveness.
And when people tries to do that, that derivation of why they are sorry, they tend to talk a lot. Tonnes of unnecessary things. Too much of a thing really will not help to ease up things.
Too much info doesn't mend, it is deteriorating instead. Bores the patch, pokes the wound.
We say sorry. Full stop. That's it. That is how it should be. And somehow it reflects true honesty.
And for that, sorry is always seems to be the hardest word. Because it is not easy. Only the strong can say sorry. Sincerely.
But it is never meant to be so expensive, let alone being cheap. Forgiveness is just priceless. And for me, it should be effortless.
