Today is the beginning of the A to Z Blogging Challenge. There will be twenty-six days of great fun, writing and reading.
For letter A my topic is Apology.
An apology is what someone gives if wrong words or actions have been perceived. It’s just a perception and doesn’t mean they actually did anything wrong.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell if what was said or done was actually wrong. People take things in different ways. What bothers one person may not affect another. The bottom line may be there is a need for an apology.
Probably the hardest apology needs to be given when the giver doesn’t feel they said or did anything wrong. This one will probably save a relationship.
The hardest one is when it accomplished the intent but in the process almost destroyed a person. Submission to doing the right thing is needful.
Most of the times I’ve given an apology were easy because I wanted to make sure the air was clear between me and whomever I apologized to. There has been instances where the person said there was no need for me to apologize because I hadn’t done anything.
Although I was glad to hear that it was also good to know they weren’t offended.
How have you handled giving an apology?
