There is a time and a place for apologies. Like when we’re wrong, or when we bump into someone. But some things you should not apologize for, so
A quandary for sure sometimes, however, when your intention was not to hurt someone but they say you did, an apology never is a bad thing.
Sometimes I think people cry fowl or ‘hurt’ just to get people to rally around them or to make others back off. The thing is we never really can know if someone is hurt or if it is manipulation. Some people do not create a scene when their feelings are hurt either, they just keep it to themselves. Everyone is different.
Hi, Elee – sorry for the late response. I was out of town without a computer and just can’t seem to accomplish on my phone what many others can! You’re so right about the balancing act it takes to deal with someone who’s feelings have been hurt or who claims their feelings are hurt. Like you, I probably err on the side of caution until someone gives me reason to not give them the benefit of the doubt!
Nobody can tell you how or what to feel. They are not YOU. <3
Exactly! As long as we’re expressing our feelings in a respectful manner, there’s just no basis for a challenge!
