Its common to say "sorry" when someone doing something bad, mistakes or hurting other. However, without taking any further action that you are totally sorry for things that you have done, is it enough to simply say sorry?
Then, what is the value of sorry? Simply a combination of 5 letters start with S? or more valuable than that?
I wanna share a story to all my beloved readers. Someone broke my computer on Disember 2012. She accidently fall it down from the table. The consequences are my hard disk broke, windows can't start, i can't fully close the screen and the wire almost detect from the screen.
With trust, i gave my lattop to her with hope that she will fix it as soon as possible. I understand that we were having exam until 24th January 2013, so i didn't push her so much to repair it. She gave it to her friend to fix it.
On 9th Feb, she return it and my latop become WORSE. I am waiting for almost 2 months just to see my lattop become worse. My 4th semester start and i need it badly. Waiting for 2 months and it worse? Can you imagine what my feeling that time?
Guess what did she say? YESS, she did say sorry.
" I am sorry and feel so bad for you, Nina " She said
" Your sorry can't fix my PC. I need it badly" I replied
" At least i'm saying something SWEET." She replied back
If someone hit you by car, you are bleeding and the driver said:
" You look so nice today. Owh, unfortunately you are bleeding but don't worry, you still look handsome/beautiful. By the way, i have to go. I have meeting, i have to look after for my mum and so on. See ya "
Concrete and abstract.
Words remain as an abstract (something that you can't see) without followed by an action to make it concrete (real).
A lover won't be loved by his girlfriend by simply said "i love you" without any action that show his love. Same goes to "sorry". It will remain as words without any further action to show that you are really sorry.
HOW TO SHOW YOUR SORRY?
Fixed things that you messed up.
# Imagine that U. S. President fail to run the country and simply said SWEET things.
" Its normal. Its an accident. Its a fate. I am so sorry American. I love you. Please choose me for next election. I love you American. " (=,='')
