I’m not always sugary sweet and today has been one of those days. I got into an argument with my mom over the phone and I accused her of only pretending to care about me. In all actuality, this woman would do just about anything for anyone. I really mean that.
I know I hurt her feelings, but I would never intentionally want her to feel bad. While I might have normally just waited to call her until later, I decided to call her back immediately and apologize for my attitude.
In doing so, I realized that it’s not always about being nice and pleasant and giving, even though that would be great, but it’s about apologizing when you make a mistake.
If you mess up, admit it.
Say your sorry and it will go a long way.
