"I am Sorry" Messages
Saying, “I am sorry” is not always easy.
We all make mistakes, and sometimes these wrong decisions are a source of hurt to someone near us.
This is unfortunate, as it’s not always a straightforward process when we realise that our words or actions have saddened someone in our lives. Often, the hurt caused is not on purpose, and other times, it is.
We are all humans, and it is impossible to be perfect or to do the right things at every turn. The important thing is to be able to swallow one’s pride and apologize. This can give someone the necessary respect that he or she deserves.
A simple “I am sorry” message can lift spirits and repair hearts. When you apologize for something you’ve done, it sets the ball in motion to healing a relationship.
Saying, “I am sorry” means that you acknowledge what you’ve done, are regretful about it, and don’t plan to repeat the negative, upsetting behaviour ever again.
“I am sorry” is a meaningful message that is important to get across.
We can also say that we are sorry for the loss or pain being experienced in another’s life. It is a sympathetic gesture that lets the person suffering know and realise that you are sad for him or her. If a close friend has lost a loved one, you would be sorry for their loss and can express this with your apologies. If a neighbour has had a bad day, you would say that you are sorry about it – showing you that you care and that you hope it won’t happen that way again.
Write your “I am sorry” message in the card accompanying your gift of choice. We have a few thought starters below; with these kinds of messages, you can’t go wrong by simply just expressing from the heart;
