    How do you go about saying that you are sorry for something that you said or did.

      I admit having done it and try to make restitution. Then I promise myself not to do it again and do my best to see that I don't.

        then that is when the forgiving is to begin.

      I say, " Please forgive me if I offended you."

      The question doesn't make sense. My process to forgiveness is fine thanks. How is yours?

    I forgive myself and learn from doing whatever it is done or said. wink

    I've no need, want or desire, to be forgiven by others. If they are not going to forget about it, then asking them to forgive me is a complete waste of time. wink

    It takes a lot of courage and humility to say forgive me.. it has been hard to do it, especially when you are not wrong..but I have learned that to be forgiven and to forgive brings you a peace that is beyond all understanding.. I never have regrets.. i say sorry and i move on.. in love.. makes me stronger every day!!
    It is such a beautiful world and all of creations is beautiful.. harmony or peace is what brings this beauty to the fore.. thanks for asking smile

    I say I'm sorry as soon as I realize I am wrong, or as soon as I am aware that I have inadvertently offended. Because the longer I wait, the more my actions hurt another human being.

    I rarely ask to be forgiven. That's presumptuous. It is up to the individual I offended by my actions to determine if, and when, they will forgive me.

    I am against forgiveness in general - it is against any logic in correcting behaviour.

    The western idea of it comes from the christian cop-out that allows catholic priests to molest children and then get forgiveness, it allows the new cult christians to rip everyone off and then seek forgiveness, also daily life every little misdemeanor can be wiped off by getting on your knees and dribbling out some nonsense.

    I am for manning up, admitting misdemeanors and getting the punishment that goes with it.  Forgive me 'cos I have sinned by lusting after my neighbours wife is a cop-out, a broken nose is far more effective and leads to a lasting change in behaviour.
