How does saying sorry help?
Lately all I have been seeing, in the news is.. cheaters, liars, and the worse part , there are going on National Television using the word SORRY. so how does saying sorry help?
It allows the person you are apologizing to the ability to forgive you. However, it is more for the benefit of the person you are apologizing to but, it feels better to know you've done something in way of repairing the situation.
Well...in my opinion, no one really knows if the cheaters and liars who you speak of on TV, really say it with any sincerity or just trying to save their career. Only they know for sure. However, time will tell if they really mean it. Hope that helped.
Mr Weiner, believe that getting on National Television and coming clean, was the right thing to do, however, all it is doing is making folks lose faith in politics and mainly so called representative....
saying sorry is not the answer...
I can't say the reason why these people are saying sorry. I am not their conscious neither their tongue. But saying sorry and meaning it let's the other person know that you didn't mean to hurt them. It lets them know that what you have done you will never do again. It also lets them know that they mean the world to you and you wouldn't want for them to think of you in any other light than the light you have grown to love.
btw: After writing this I just remembered that sorry is overrated these days, it's like answering a telephone. I swear I hear the word sorry at least 100 times a day and if the truth be told it has nothing to do with whatever the situation is. I think people use it because they think it is polite. Most of the time I ignore it because it can be quite annoying!

it depends who uses this word, if a really kind person says sorry everyone will accept it & forgive but sorry from a cheaters, liars mouth is never acceptable.....whether on TV or somewhere else
i hate that word because i have found that maybe 1 in 50 people actually mean it. to me it is a cop-out, nothing more.
If you feel someone has done you wrong, and they say sorry, they are at least acknowledging they have hurt your feelings or let you down. Yes it usually helps to know they are sorry for what they did. Some people can't/won't say sorry because of their pride or their refusal to see what they've done or the other persons point of view, this can usually lead to complicated relationships/relationships ending or resentment by others. It doesn't mean you need to or should forgive the other person, but it helps to know that they are sorry for what they've done. In the case of a 'cheater' I think sometimes they are just "Sorry" for getting caught, and their apology may not even be genuine, but at least they are trying to be.
If a person really means it, he gets a reward far more valuable than anything on earth.
If he's just shining us on, then nothing can help them.
For ourselves, use forgiveness. But true forgiveness is letting go and never again needing to revisit that past perception of hurt. It helps to take 100% responsibility for your part in creating our current reality. That's right... 100%! That part of you which understands will know what I mean. The ego doesn't know anything.
It's just a way to show that they still have good character for being able to admit and accept that they were wrong. It might not really help, and viewers might not forgive, but for them, it's a way of "saving face" once they've been caught.
I think saying sorry is just the beginning. One needs to show the actions that one is truley sorry.

Does saying sorry come easily to you if you are wrong?On a scale of 1 to 10, how easy is it for you to say so? 1 being the hardest and 10, the easiest.

Should you apologize if a friendship is at risk, even when its 100% not your fault?When should you grin and bear it and say sorry to someone that you have a history with of many years of friendship, but that you were the one that was right and they were not, and they yelled that you were the reason...

I'm part of a family full of people who don't say I'm sorry. I had to actually learn how to say those words. My mother never said I'm sorry to me for some of the hurtful things she said and did.Have you ever had moments with family or friends where you couldn't utter those two words? Why?

Is "Sorry" the only way to realize our mistakes?Most of the time when we did some mistakes we say only "Sorry". So just to say sorry makes us free from our mistake which we did.

What do you think of people saying, "I'm sorry" Does it really make everything okay or right?Do you think saying sorry for something still makes everything 'right' between you and another person? Do you think it carries as much meaning now as it used to in the past? Or do you think it's...
