Sorry! The Magic Word

The unusual events in our lives arise from our own actions and instincts. The chain of events that does some collateral damage to our emotions is nevertheless a unique thing but a common phenomenon. A husband cheating on his wife, a melancholic wife at the verge of collapse, a lover trying to find his place in the heart of his beloved, an old grandpa wanting to marry another granny because of loneliness might be some exceptions taking into consideration the rise in polygamy these days.

Sorry! This is  a catch phrase we often use in our daily mundane chores of emotions…but never the less it has been a custom to make things work with a simple sorry for the great emotional damages done……Would you consider to pause for a moment and think for a while…why is it sorry to say sorry? 

We often come across brawls, quarrel, misunderstandings etc. It is almost synonymous to the medical miracle to save life in a dying person. Such is the power of ‘Sorry’. A child with some terrible behavior, when caught by a teacher, says sorry to the teacher, the teacher feels a heightened sense of pride for what the child just said…….such is the power of ‘Sorry’.

So my claim is spoken and I seek solace in the verses of Sir Elton John;

What have I got to do to be heard
What do I say when it's all over
And sorry seems to be the hardest word
It's sad, so sad
It's a sad, sad situation
And it's getting more and more absurd
It's sad, so sad
Why can't we talk it over
Oh it seems to me
That sorry seems to be the hardest word
