* Qualilty of life :Say you're sorry!

Share This

"I didn't do anything!" "It's not my fault!" "Say you're sorry!"

Saying you're sorry is called apologizing. When you apologize, you're telling someone that you're sorry for the hurt you caused, even if you didn't do it on purpose. People who are apologizing might also say that they will try to do better. They might promise to fix or replace what was broken or take back a mean thing they said.

How Does It Make You Feel?

When you apologize to someone — and really mean it — it's because you have stopped to think about how the person may have felt because of what you did or said. When you stop to think about the other person's feelings, you begin to feel sorry for your behavior. You might even feel embarrassed or ashamed if you did something that you knew was wrong.

What Does an Apology Sound Like?

There are many ways to apologize. Here are some examples:

"I'm sorry about the mean thing I said to you."

"I'm sorry I lost your book."

"I was mad, but I shouldn't have called you a name. I'm sorry."

"I'm sorry I hurt your feelings."

"I'm sorry I yelled at you."

"I'm really sorry I hit you when I was mad. That was wrong. I won't do it anymore."

When Should You Apologize?

You might need to apologize if you hurt or teased someone or lost something that belonged to someone else. You might need to apologize if you broke something (even by accident — oops!), or if you did something they knew was wrong — like telling a lie or breaking a rule on purpose.

What If You Were Angry?

Everyone feels angry with someone else now and then. Being angry is OK — and nothing to apologize for — but knowing how to tell someone what made you angry is important.

Does Apologizing Fix Everything?

Saying I'm sorry when you need to is the right thing to do. It does a lot of good. But by itself, it might not be enough to make everything all better again. Sometimes along with an apology, a person needs to fix the mistake or say they will try to do better. Sometimes doing a nice thing for the person after you apologize helps show that you really are sorry and want to be friendly again.

Sometimes a heartfelt "I'm sorry" fixes everything right away. Other times, it might take a while for someone to feel friendly after you apologize. You might need to give the other person some time. Even after you say you're sorry, you might still feel bad about what you said or did — but you can feel good about apologizing and about making up your mind to do better.
