Good day! Let's quickly review yesterday's article.

Revenge is a wrong thing to embark on. Revenge brings nothing but negativity, and it'll require to generate much negative energy to puul it off. Instead of that, you should just focus your energy on healing from whatever pain made you to want to revenge. Sometimes, we're concerned about revenge because we've been clouded by the hurt or pain we experienced. And the more we put our energy to revenge, the more we get emotionally broken because of how much time we've subjected our minds to revenge.

The best to do is to forgive and move forward even though it's not as easy as said. Bit we don't get to think of this because our minds are already filled up with negativity and we don't even have time to think about another way to resolve the issue other than nursing the wounds caused by the pain or hurt. It's important to always forgive and forget so that we'll become better humans because if we don't forgive, we'll be holding ourselves back instead of moving forward.

Most of us have been hurt at some point in life but it'll be bad of we allow it consume us by making sure we revenge because if not we'll be letting them win, which is a wrong mindset.

The main reason you'd want to hurt the other person is because you have not healed. And the funny thing is that the person that wronged you might not even know they did something wrong, but in your mind, you'll be thinking it's intentional and revenge will be justified.

When you're planning on revenge, you'll be aggravating the problem and playing into the hand of the person or people that hurt you. You can move forward without having to revenge.

Respect is something we all want. Everyone wants to be respected. We expect it in our personal lives and in our professional lives. We want to earn respect by showing that we're worthy and by showing that we're responsible, by how hard we work and what we produce. So, if you want to be respected, learn to apologize for your mistakes when necessary.

We all make mistakes. That is a fact of life. What we do with those mistakes determines whether or not we deserve the respect and appreciation of others. The only way to learn to make better and fewer mistakes is to learn from them. You can learn from both small and large mistakes. There is no shame in making a mistake but there is shame in refusing to acknowledge a mistake after being told about it or if it is so big that it dominates the conversation.

Learning to apologize for your mistakes can be a difficult thing to do. After all, it is human nature to resist apologizing for what we feel we did not do wrong. The funny thing about apologies, however, is that they are not just about being contrite for what you did wrong – although that may be necessary. Instead, an apology is a way of showing respect and contrition to everyone you work with or meet. You can earn respect by learning to apologize for what you get wrong but not for who you are or what you accomplish. Apologize for disrespecting someone else but not for setting performance standards.

If you want to be respected, learn to apologize for your mistakes when necessary, and by this I mean actually apologize. We all make mistakes, we're all human. There's nothing wrong with that. The destructive thing is when we can't admit when we are out of line or when we break the rules. Have you ever been on a team where someone made a mistake and they got defensive instead of saying that they were sorry?

People will literally fight over who is responsible for something going wrong and then they both refuse to take the blame and neither is willing to admit that they made a mistake. It's infuriating

I've learned that to earn respect, you don't apologize for who you are or what you accomplish. You apologize for disrespecting someone else. You apologize for setting performance standards and then not following through with them. It's easy to apologize for a failure to be respectful but you must never apologize for your values or for your expectations. In fact, it would be better to apologize for a lack of follow-through rather than give in and lower your standards.

Thanks for reading through. I hope loved it.

💯You’re absolutely right, apologizing for a mistake is the best decision one can make but it’s also difficult when one has pride. To have a clear conscience and free mind it’s necessary we say sorry when we are wrong

It's really hard for us to apologise and admit our mistakes but it's something that we really need to do for others to respect us and treat us good. Because if you keep on staying up our Pride and Ego we wouldn't be able to grow up and learn from our mistakes.

Only the brave people have the courage to apologise, and one who claims to be brave and courageous but lacks to apologise for their mistakes or wrong deeds are not more than coward.

You title says it all, if we made mistakes then apologize it's not that big deal to lower our pride for once. If we want to be respected then be respectful. What we show always comes around.

Forgiveness is one of the great virtues of human beings. If someone makes a mistake or does something wrong, if he realizes his mistake and feels remorse and seeks forgiveness, then he should forgive without taking revenge.

Apologies provide dignity to those you have wronged. Allowing the injured individual to know that it was your fault, not theirs, makes them feel better and helps them keep their dignity. Apologizing helps to heal relationships by re-engaging people in conversation and restoring their trust in one another....

People find it difficult to apologize when they've clearly wronged Someone else, I don't know whether to attribute to personality or pride. It's wrong. Once we wrong someone, we should try as much as possible to apologize because if same thing is done to us, we would obviously not be happy.

And it's quite bad, when such cases come up. Persons should set their pride aside and do the needful.

For real, people find difficult to apologies when they do wrong, maybe they believe they could go scot-free when they don't get to appeal for their wrongdoing. Truth is that they lose respect as a result. We should keep our integrity by just saying I AM SORRY.
