Even if you’re right, it’s better to be on the side that goes, “I’m sorry”.
Because, then, the other side has an either-or option---to forgive, or to hold the grudge, which would make him/her/them look childish and unforgiving.
Besides, “sorry” works wonders on wounded pride, egos and anger; it’s much easier to bring him/her/them to your point of view when he/she/they are calmer.
Anyway, saying sorry requires lots of effort and inner-strength. It kills the proud :D.
Using “sorry” like this:-
“I’m sorry I fell in love with you, sorry I gave everything you wanted, sorry I was there for you all the time”
That’s not apologizing. That’s something called GUILT-TRIPPING. Because, what is the person being “apologized” to going to respond? It’s all right, I liked it when it happened?
Reminds me of some parents in movies:-
Parent to teen: ”Well, I’m sorry for giving you the best!”
Best way to counter?
Teen: ”It’s all right; I didn’t really need the best, anyway.”
