I want to say if you have ever been offended by a post or a comment I have posted please know I am truly sorry. I hope you see me as a kind person who is considerate of everyone. Then again I am very human and I do make mistakes. Sometimes what I post on my blog or when I comment doesn’t always translate to the keyboard from my head. Being mean isn’t in my nature, just ask anyone I know. Once again my friends I do want you to know I value our connections and I can’t afford to lose friendships. Thank you for understanding with respect and repentance. If you have any concerns please feel free to contact me. If you wish to ever un-follow my blog I won’t hold ill will against you. Sorry for any misunderstandings on my part.
The only thing for sure we know about communication is that we tend to get it wrong. Michael Ray Smith.
Everyone screws up, it’s a terminal condition of being human beings. You will make a mistake every now and then and you know its OK. We will hurt others or do other things we truly regret. Thinking about what you are about to do can minimize life’s errors. However there are sometimes the failure to think can really impact your life and the lives of others. We live in a hyper-connected world today and your mistakes could be online in minutes.
You gotta be careful. Something you do might impact someone seriously. A best practice when one does something wrong its good to admit responsibility, say you are sorry then move on and hope a lesson has been learned. However there is always the possibility you will repeat the same mistake which happens. I am not always good about learning my lessons, so I have been told. I tend to be sorry even for things I didn’t do which is a serious quirk I have. Remember no one is perfect. No one, sorry to say.
Humility is a important character trait to have. Being contrite can help rebuild bridges that have caught fire through my own verbal mistakes. Admitting when one has done wrong is something I don’t have a problem doing. When there have been hurt feelings I will say sorry and I will want to try to reconcile with the persons I have offended. Never fear that when I have done somebody wrong I do what I can to make it up to them. The world has too many people who have chips on their shoulders over things that don’t mean much in eternity. Forgiveness is also a great virtue to have. So lets seek peace and cooperation among the world where we carry around burdens that could be let go.
