Love means always being able to say you're sorry. -ME

I've heard the old saying "love means never having to say you're sorry" and I strongly disagree. Love means being able to say you are sorry and allows you to own up to whatever behavior it was that warrants an apology. It's not easy to admit fault. It's never easy to admit your motives behind doing something that would be hurtful. However, that being said: when you do act out in a way that upon inspection was hurtful, or resentful or childish even and you realize it and take responsibility for it...well, that makes the other person truly know that you did see it, you are regretful of it and that hopefully you did learn something from it. It's never fun to eat crow...but with all the toxic things out in the world that we put in our mouths now days...a little crow every now and then might not be such a bad snack!
