This used to be a really difficult thing for me. To swallow my pride and apologize.
You be the bigger person.
Or, it's not my fault.
However, with some time and a lot of practice, it's become a bit easier. There are definitely times when I don't want to apologize, but ultimately, I try to approach situations being gentle and not getting my back up. I always tell myself to put my pride on the side and make the situation better. An apology goes a long way, and as the age old saying goes, 'Do you want to be right, or do you want to be happy?'
I thought I would bring back the Let's Chat again, it's been a while and it was always enjoyable reading your responses!
