Emotional Intelligence

I Am Sorry

Something interesting happened to me recently.
I reached out to sow a seed into the life of a lady who has been a constant spiritual blessing.
Then she gave me a call but I missed it so I returned it.
She then went ahead to share a sad story on how I hurt her with my words about 6 years ago.
I couldn’t remember the incident. Neither did I forget. I just knew something transpired but I couldn’t remember what.
She on the other hand remembered vividly. She emptied her heart to me by telling me all she brooded over for 6 years.

I Am Sorry

I took responsibility for the pain by uttering the words.

I was wrong.
I am sorry.
Please forgive me.

I can’t remember the sin but as long as I hurt her. I am sorry.

Life is too short to prove points, act defensively or feed my ego.

I am an emotionally intelligent adult.
