apologies.

August 31, 2009

Just a quick post. I had someone apologize to me the other night. It happened quite out of the blue, without any prompting from me about the incident that called for the apology. And given I was still hanging out with the person in question, the incident clearly wasn’t too heartbreaking. But the apology was surprising and surprisingly nice. It’s so easy to brush off small offenses and never mention them again. Then again, how hard is it to just say, “I’m sorry; I didn’t mean anything by it”.

  1. I sometimes struggle with the apology window of opportunity. If it takes me too long to realize I was wrong, I end up wondering if apologizing will resurface this issue, fix things I didn’t know were still broken, or just be brushed aside. I usually keep quiet.


    • I’m the same way. I think most people usually brush off an apology when a certain amount of time has passed. That’s why I was so surprised to get an apology.
