“So you’re sorry
That face of an angel
Comes out just when you need it to
And I paced back and forth all this time
Cause I honestly believed in you”
Sorry. As noted in the dictionary, “feeling or expressing sympathy, pity, or regret”. But does that singular word hold that same meaning today that it held years before? As I’ve grown, it seems like the word ‘sorry’ is being more and more carelessly thrown out into conversations. It’s as people believe that with this magic word, everything is resolved and there are no hard feelings. Well, that may have cut it back then, but now, just throwing in a ‘sorry’ every five minutes decreases its’ credibility ever more. In fact, if you disappoint a person and just throw in ‘sorry’, it seems like an insult because you could do so much more. You can take the intiative and do something about, rather than just sit there and say ‘sorry’.
Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not as if ‘sorry’ has become a taboo word in my books, but honestly, it needs to be used in small doses. Hearing sentence after sentence with the word ‘sorry’ ending it each time, just causes one to hate the word all together. Instead of hiding behind the word, throw it away all together, face the problem and tackle it. At the end, you won’t feel as much guilt and you won’t disappoint as much.
