Be inspired by these apology poems to say I am sorry. In life, we sometimes say things without thinking and we end up hurting the people we care the most for. Or we do something that we later regret. Show your remorse by saying I am sorry, ask the person for
their forgiveness. When we apologize we are also making a promise that we will not do this again. We are taking responsibility for what we have done, and acknowledging the wrong.
The worst thing you can do is nothing. Admit when you are wrong when you have made a mistake. And do it quickly. Don't let hurt or anger go on for a long time as the longer it goes on the harder it is for both sides.
And don't let your pride get in your way. We sometimes can be stubborn or we look to others for blame before we really accept what we have done. Step back and look at the situation, ask yourself what would you do, how would you feel if the shoe was on the other foot!
Relationships in life are perhaps the most important aspect of our lives. Money, things, possessions none of them bring true happiness, but relationships are critical. Don't lose relationships that are important to you by not apologizing when you should. And, even at times when you think you were not in the wrong, by apologizing you then can discuss the situation. But if you point the finger, if you say it is not my fault, that resolves nothing.
Never think words do not matter. What we say and sometimes more importantly how we say it can improve a situation or it can destroy a situation. Perhaps you have said something that was misunderstood - say you are sorry and explain what you truly meant.
In life one of the most important things you can learn is to say, "I am sorry". Offer your apology and show remorse - it is one of life's most important lessons!
There are times when, at the moment, we don't think we have done wrong. But once we reflect on the situation we can see that perhaps our words or actions were inappropriate.
Say, you are sorry with this short poem.
Let your apology come from the heart. People can sense a sincere apology and
a phony one. If you are just saying it for the sake of saying it then you might as well not say it!
And, always ask for forgiveness, but don't expect it right away.
Never do I want to take you for granted
It can make one feel like they are stranded
I am sorry I made you feel that way
Words just can't seem to say
How very sorry that I am
Please forgive me if you can!
What is an apology? What does it stand for? Let this short poem give you some answers.
A is for "accepting" I was wrong
P is for "pleading" for your forgiveness
O is for "omission" of your feelings
L is for "losing" my pride and saying I'm sorry
O is for "ownership" of my mistakes
G is for "gracious", asking for your grace
Y is for "yielding" my errors and my ways.
Why do we do the things we do. Sometimes we question the why. Sometimes in the heat of the moment, we say things we should not say. We feel bad for causing sadness and hurt. We truly feel like a smuck! Let this short apology poem be one that you share when you find yourself questioning "oh why"!
There are special people in our life, that we would never want to hurt. Yet, sometimes, without even realize we say the wrong words or do the wrong thing - let this poem express your feelings when that happens.
One last thought, that needs emphasis on saying an apology, say it, and then stop. Never say I am sorry and then go on
to give an excuse or a reason. That is a sure sign that you really don't mean the apology you are saying.
And, you will find an argument that may be brewing that will take away any
meaning from the apology. Life is too short to stay mad or upset, say "I am sorry!"
And, look back and realize what you did that upset the other person. Learn from that and move on. Don't beat yourself up, remember that none of us are perfect!
