Why do we hesitate to say sorry to people close to us?Often, at work or at public places, if we bump into someone accidentally, we say sorry. If the supervisor, boss or teacher is unhappy with our work, we say sorry. When we make errors, we apologize.
Many of us have minor arguments at home too or even have an exchange of harsh words with children, spouse or parents. We do regret or feel bad, but we never openly acknowledge and say sorry. After sometime or the next day morning, we cautiously restart talking and then in a day or two we are back to normal
I have seen this more with grown-ups and elders at few homes. What makes us hesitate to say a quick word or make an apology ? Is it that we take them for granted ?
