Elton John sang about it -"Sorry seems to be the hardest word".

Does this song apply to you, or do you find it easy to say, and mean, "sorry?"

I do not have a problem saying sorry when I am in the wrong.

I used to when I was younger, however now there is no point NOT saying it if it is true. It clears the air.

I do not like people who cannot, or rather, will not say sorry if they do something "wrong".

I am almost always the first to say Sorry when I know I am in the wrong, even if it is with my children. It never hurts to say sorry.
Yes, it is never easy to be on the confronting end where we know we screwed up. But the sensible thing to do is to man up to it and apologize for your actions, no matter how light it might be.
No not at all, I do try very hard to act in a way that doesn't require me to apologise for my actions. Having said that I am the first to admit that I have made a mistake and the first to apologise for that mistake.
I am comfortable to sincerely say I am sorry.
Allows people involved to move on.
If we postpone the apology it makes it so much more difficult and could lead to losing a friend.
I think sincere apology is healthy in building trusted relationships.

I will say sorry when I have done something wrong. I think people don't realise that sorry means you should not do what you are apologising for again

Very true Alex!

I say it.
I mean it.
I was taught it is vital to not only say it when you have done something wrong....but you must mean it.Only from knowing how much we can hurt others , we learn to also mean we really are 'sorry'.
I have a big problem with the word, to me it is so easy for a person to say 'sorry', and they don't mean it.
I tend to go the extra mile, because being hurt or making a mistake has effects, on the other person.
If you get a sorry from me, it is deeply felt.I have looked at 'why' I am saying sorry, and take it all into account.Trying very very hard not to let it happen again, to that person.
When I am wrong, I find it much harder not to say 'sorry'.

What sort of a person must we be if we do not know how to sincerely apologise when in the wrong?I hate hurting anyone in any way,as I have been on the receiving end and if I had received a heartfelt apology,I believe a decent friendship may have been saved..Having re-read that,maybe the friendship was all on my side only and not worth saving? I am still very keen to apologise and clear the air if I feel I have done wrong to anyone. Treat others as you wish to be treated,not how you have been treated! If I have inadvertently offended any of you out there,then guess what? I apologise,and with all my heart.
No, I'd rather say sorry and deal with it all that keep it all unresolved. Saying sorry also allows you to say what you perhaps didnt get the chance to say earlier and because you've taken the higher moral ground generally the other party is ready to listen. Not always the case but often. But, having said that don't say sorry if you don't mean it, it just makes thing worse!
I am ok with saying sorry. The more I do it the easier it becomes.
