WHY does the introduction HAVE to be so loud!!!!!
When one opens up the Jewlarious, which is good to very good, it each times shakes the living daylights out of me is that absolutely necessary!!!!

Very interesting way of demonstrating how hard it is to admit your wrong and say you're sorry.

Give up the Ego
If we would only learn to be a little more humble (not weak!) and learn to leave our egos at the door we would see that saying "I'm sorry" is not so hard. It doesn't cost money and it only makes us stronger.....from experience.

Sometimes it is:
Difficult to say "I`m sorry ." Because we think in terms of:"justice" "injustice" "right" "wrong"fair" "unfair" - think consequences and it will pay off in the long run!

Saying I'm sorry and MEANING it is easy. All it takes is realizing that you don't have to be right all the time.

I'm Sorry or I Have put myself First
Many times when I have had to say "I'm sorry" it has been when I have put myself first.One example would be,when I have been in a hurry to get out of a store and cut someone off with a shopping cart, I'll say "I'm sorry". At that point in time I am listening to my animal soul and that action puts me in that "me first" mindset. I think the OFFENCE can be a MIRROR of how we are at that time, so if we immediately EXAMINE ourselves our higher soul will show us that we have wronged another. This self examination is what is difficult,but if we don't examine & see our faults we will not apologize for our offences, we cannot grow spiritually & be the good example to others.
