Apologizing

does not always mean that you are wrong and the other person is right.

It just means that you value the relationship more than your own ego.


Discuss amongst yourselves

Yes, true.

But, it is so hard to let go of self (*especially* when you are right!) and embrace the other.

My hubby's and I new thing is from the movie "Megamind" where Megamind tells his minion: "You were right, I was... less right."

True. I apologize to my sister a lot even when I'm right for the sake of peace in the family :)

Scripture to keep in mind

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh his soul detesteth: [17] Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, [18] A heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, [19]A deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren. [20] My son, keep the commandments of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother. ***Cf:Douay-Rheims Proverbs 6: 16-20
