I Am Sorry…

“An apology is a lovely perfume; it can transform the clumsiest moment into a gracious gift.” – The Fresh Quotes
To fly higher, to soar the blue skies of life simply means you have to let go of what weighs you down. Do you know what weighs you down? What drains your energy and excitement? It’s time to look at what you are dragging with you (anger, sadness, resentment and fear) that might be weighing you down and then to let go!
The first step in letting go of what weighs down is admitting your mistakes. Admitting your mistakes means to drop off your ego. Admitting your mistakes to others liberates you more than it does to them. Here are some of the best words in the English Language, “I Am Sorry.” The reason why these are the good words is because of the power they carry with them. They could start a whole new relationship. These simple words could start two people to go into a whole new direction. They must never be accompanied by any explanation or justification whenever they are used. “I am sorry, I was wrong and how can you help me get this right?” this is all you need.  What makes these simple words so difficult to say is mainly because of human ego. So, drop-off your ego and have your freedom.
Here is the big one, admit your mistakes and apologise to yourself. Tell yourself to your face that, “There’s no use fooling and kidding myself, I have messed up, period.” You are not where you could have been because of excuses and focusing your precious time on trivial things. Apologise to yourself for selling yourself short all along, for not fighting for what you deserve and instead allowing common consciousness that you are not deserving of greatness. Until you admit and apologise to yourself about letting yourself down, nothing will happen for you. This is where you learn the power of, ‘I Am Sorry, it starts with yourself.’ If you don’t do this, you will always blame the world for your incompetence, mistakes and shortcomings and be forever grounded by your ego.
