THE FIVE MOST IMPORTANT WORDS...


I once heard the five most important words in relationships are...


"I'M SORRY I WAS WRONG!"


We all do and say things we should't do. God knows I have and I still do, to be honest. We are human, frail, imperfect and self absorbed. A struggle with self control, lack of boundaries, selfishness and fear being at the core of conflicts. We kick and scream like a toddler having a tantrum trying to assert our rights and demands. There are words we can not erase and actions we can not shove under the rug. Yet, if we take a step back and humble ourselves to look at where we have fallen short, we can take responsibility for ourselves. From this posture, we can offer our loved ones true humility and make amends with five healing words...."I'm sorry I was wrong!" No excuses. This is where the relationship fracture can start to heal. Honest, transparent communication and staying current with our feelings is an ongoing process. A look in the mirror and a commitment to personal growth is doing our part to maintain the healthy loving relationships we so desire. It takes courage and willingness. Try it. Next time you mess up take a deep breath and utter those five words. Watch how anomosity, anger and resentment start to melt away. Admitting when we are wrong is the first step to making it right...


"I'M SORRY I WAS WRONG!"
