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.

    This happened to me by a friend I hanged out with for like 16 years. She threw something in my face ( a family matter) She said she would not apologize and that's the end of that. Despite I was sad, God brought me something better two days later.

    my friend refused to apologize so that means the truth did not set her free and she must be spiritually miserable. God punishes those who hurt others and play it off egotisticly that they don't have to when the other has mentioned they were hurt

    I hear you rajan. The tricky thing about that is. If you do it one time, people seem to expect you to always be the one to bow down EVEN if they are wrong (sigh). Somebody's going to end up with the short end of the stick..lol

    what if the person tells you, that you hurt them and they feel sad. My friend responded that I was too sensitive, I replied have a nice life, I'm not going to take a chance of this selfish person who refuses to apologize to hurt me again.

    My friend refused to apologize so I said if she doesn't care that she hurt me means that it can be worse next time. Someone advised me to stay away from her. From things I said to a male friend about the situation, he replied " Pure Jealousy"

    yea but even ourown family will take advantage of that. Imagine being a girl and being told your wrong even when you know your right. In any case, for a friend you should apologize, for a stranger it depends,

    I apologize or I forgive, in my case I forgave but didn't want her around anymore she refused to apologize, but shes Jewish not christian. Jews are not into apologizing or forgiving because it brings them down. Christians are taught to be humble.

    This world is full of evil and that is why not too many like to apologize they think it will lower them, but they will pay the price, They will lose your friendship &if they still have anger or jealousy, God will take care of them. BELIEVE ME !!

    ok great I agree, but unfortunately everyone here is talking about apologizing if they don't feel they are in the wrong, but what if someone tells you, or texts you that your hurt, all I got from someone was your too sensitive

    Only problem was with me, my friend was too up there if u know what I mean. Too stubborn to accept she hurt me. Then when I tried to forgive her but didn't want to have her friendship and told her about God, she and her husband thought I was crazy.

    People will think your crazy or too silly. Try to stop that. Gaining weight is nothing you have to apologize for. BEing blamed for things by our family happens to all of us many times, but don't let it run your life

    But what if you know you hurt the person, dying with the sin may make you go somewhere you don't want to go. Now some don't believe in God, but I feel sorry for them their in for a big surprise that's scary
