The Magic of Sorry

The Magic of Sorry

From my experience of living my life for the past 14 years, one thing I’m sure that I’ve learned is the value of a magic word – ‘sorry’. Do you really fathom the value of this magical word? Anyways, I learned it the hard way. An argument with my friend turned into the greatest eye opener for me. That day I argued with my friend, well, that day changed a lot. We have been taught that there are 4 magic words. Sorry, please, thank you and may I. Each of these magic words holds its own value. I think the magic word which I’ve used the most would probably be sorry because I didn’t know the true meaning of it back then. The word, ‘sorry’ is like a one-time use weapon, a powerful one. You must use it wisely because if you use it unnecessarily then you don’t really mean your sorry.

There’s something which I’ve seen amongst people that made me think about this topic. A fear in the minds of people. An unnecessary fear. The fear of telling sorry. People think that they become weak or inferior to someone when they say sorry. But that’s not true. It is completely okay to admit your mistake. A person who tells sorry is the one who has gotten rid of his ego, his superiority/inferiority complex and has nothing in his heart but the guilt of the bad act he has done. The person who tells sorry might not be the guilty one always but he tells sorry for the sake of balancing the relationship. That needs to be appreciated, I mean, look at the effort.

As I’ve stated earlier, sorry is a powerful weapon which is hard to use but the effects of this one word is way bigger than you can ever imagine. One sorry can change the life of a person. It makes the other person feel better and loved. It doesn’t just make the listener feel better but also the speaker. I know it is hard to believe it but yes, my dear friends, this is the truth. Think about the times when you fought with your friends and ended the friendship thinking that your friend was at fault. What if it was you who was the faulty one? What if you had apologised to your friend? That friendship could have been saved. But it is not late yet to apologise and be empathetic.

It’s never too late to say SORRY
