Why is it so difficult for some people to say the word “sorry”…  It is one of the most powerful words we have at our disposal, but one of the least frequently used in our vocabulary. It is a word that can transcend suffering as well as supersede conflict. It is so simple. It allows us to take responsibility for our actions and our intention, as well as honor and respect one another … Often what we do is not with the intent to inflict pain or hurt, but it does… And yes, simply taking care of ourselves can hurt another who has different expectations or demands. But, even if we have done so without meaning to, acknowledging we have, is a gift we have to give one another. Using the word sorry is not weakness or admitting defeat, it is power. It is acknowledging another.  It is resonating in compassion and love… © Jodi Healy
