Is it hard to say I'm sorry?
Why is it so hard for people to admit when they are wrong??
It's pretty hard to admit that you are wrong. Especially if you have an ego problem. It's because you are admitting that you are flawed, and your flaws have negative consequences. That's hard to own up to.
There is also another saying, that if someone apologizes more than once, they are trying to protect their damages egos. Apologizing makes people look like a good person, in a weird twisted way.
I've been known to do both of these, so I understand where people come from when they struggle to apologize the right amount of times. I also understand how frustrating it can be not to get the satisfaction of getting a good apology.
People own different attitudes.. saying sorry is that easy for as long as you are sincere.. I say it everytime I make mistakes and would work hard not to make the same next time..
It is not hard for me to say sorry to my kuds when i am wrong but my hubby never says sorry when he is wrong, gives more excuses for his mistakes
For some folks saying one's sorry is an affront to their personal ego -- which in my opinion it shouldn't be. It takes a generous, open and mentally mature human being to genuinely apologize -- no matter the subject. An apology for any reason should make the "apologizer" and the one being apologized to feel better - not worse. If one feels worse after apologizing it's very possible the apology was made for all the wrong reasons and really served no other purpose than to soothe the apologizer's ego as to being a "nice" person.

Do you apologise to people, even if you are NOT in the wrong – just for peace sake?I do sometimes, to avoid any stress but I don’t want people thinking I’m a soft touch.
