Is it enough?

I was somewhere about two weeks ago when a car almost ran into a bike man save for the timely manoeuvre the old bike man made. The woman at the wheels of the car stopped and waved as she mouthed ‘I am sorry’ to the bike man.

The bike man, obviously angry and with a reason to be started a fit. Making signs with his hands and raising his voice at the woman. I started to say ‘Move on now, shebi she had apologised’, when I paused and I asked myself the same question I am asking now.

I have hurt people too at some point ranging from forgetting to call on someone’s birthday to other ‘bigger’ things. The question therefore begs for an answer.

Is a simple ‘I am sorry’ enough to move on or forget the near hurts or hurts that people throw at you?

Your opinions please.

Thanks.

  1. A simple I’m sorry is the general antidote to healing pains and hurts, but you see It might differ considering the person and level of hurt involved; for some, you might have to buy them cold stone ice cream while telling them sorry *winks*. For others Sorry just does it.

  2. Actually, ‘I am sorry’ works magic on me. If I was already boiling before and u say those words, my anger melts immediately, i’ll just keep quiet. But, that’s me.
    Like Famous14Christ said, it depends on the person u’re dealing with. I’ve met people who get even more irritated when u tell them u’re sorry.
    So, u may need to back up your words with an *action that shows u’re indeed sorry. ( actions like; a gift, a funny gesture( depends), a complete repair( extreme… and so on). A silent prayer, goes ahead to touch the heart of the offended too.

  3. I AM SORRY DOES ACTUALLY WORK FOR SOME PERSONS;LIKE ME CAUSE I FEEL ITS A BOLD STEP FOR SOMEONE TO ACTUALLY OWN UP TO THEIR BAD AND VOICE THOSE WORDS, ITS ON THE CONTRARY FOR SOME PERSONS THOUGH;I HAVE MET QUITE A NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT DETESTS THE WORD CAUSE THEY FEEL LIKE I AM SORRY IS TELLING THEM TO KEEP QUIET SO YOUR CAUTIOUS ACTIONS PROBABLY COME TO RESCUE HERE BUT I STILL REALLY THINK ITS NEEDED CAUSE IT IS THE QUICKEST THING THAT COMES TO MIND TO SHOW REMORSE
