My take on apologies?
Well they speak volumes of your character.
Believe it or not-
Every one is gonna mess up.
He’s going to make a mistake.
She’s going to go the wrong way.
Someone is going to say something that hurt you.
One day you’re going to wish you never did something that is done already.
And it’s about the way you pick yourself up and acknowledge your error.
And can you apologize for it… no I mean sincerely, say you’re sorry in the most humble and honest way possible— with hope that you’re forgiven, but understanding if you’re not? Have you ever been taught how? Do you know what the premise of “I’m sorry” is?
It means I wish I hadn’t and I won’t do it again.
I found the above note on the tumblr of a girl I met at a party a few weeks ago. She’s a wonderful girl that I spent a bit of time with at said party.
There is a backstory to the following apology below. Although it has already been discussed with the person involved, I was moved by her post to add more to it here in the public space. The rabbit hole goes deep with this tale in which I view the experience to truly be something that I will smile about and forever treasure in my mind, regardless of what happens in the aftermath.
And to you “my” dear sir so & so…
I’m truly sorry I reacted the way that I did. Hopefully someday you may see to the sincerity.. of moments so pure and beautiful that in the aftermath (I hope it’s a see you later, rather than a goodbye)in my heart of something magical in its own right rather than the tainted disdain it may very well likely (doubtfully) have become.
I realize that if I’ve waited this long for 1 legendary moment, regardless if there’s more after, what a great moment to have to look back at. Here’s hoping that you will not only remain there. Here’s hoping you visit me in the realm of… whatever way you desire, if only for another moment once again.
