[No. 1] Love Is Saying Sorry and Meaning It

What is love? Love is saying sorry and meaning it.

I never used to apologize.

It’s not because I didn’t want to…

I just didn’t know how to.

I wanted to form the words but something always stopped me.

There are many words for that something.

For me, it was pride.

This man taught me the great strength that comes with putting pride aside

to truly look someone in the eyes and say “I’m sorry for the way I’ve hurt you.”

Not “I’m sorry but…” not “I’m sorry if…” but a heartfelt apology accepting responsibility for your actions.

Can you genuinely apologize to those you’ve hurt?

Cheers,
