Sometimes even though we are adults and think we have figured out most of the answers to our lives, we still seem to fuck up big time. Well some of us do anyways...
We do things that we normally wouldn't do because of our insecurities and doubts that we have allowed others to put into our heads.
For the most part I am a straight shooter,and just say what is there. I expect others to be the same way with me. And I have a great deal of respect for them when they are. Whether we agree on things or not. But who the hell am I to have expectations of someone else. I thought I learned a long time ago not to do that. To have hope but not expectations.
The words I'm sorry have always been ones that don't come out of my mouth without honestly, completely beyond the shadow of a doubt meaning it. Tonight I did something that I am really sorry for. But once words are out you can only hope that someone will look at how you might have felt and why you said what you did. And maybe they can forgive me. At least I can hope.......

I think a lot of us have been there, I know lots of us who have said things that we later regret! We are all human, and deserve to be given a chance - thats just my opinion - I hope everything works out for you and here is a big HUG to help you along!! Take care hun!

Ah Honey its ok i knew you didnt mean it..................oh you weren't talking to me.

Hell Treas, You know I develop foot in mouthitis often, That sometimes i react out of hurt, anger, fear or any of the other emotions that i can feel..........instead of acting on what i do know or not acting at all................Those that know me, know me well enough to know that if i am wrong I will admit it and if i am not wrong I wont.........never regret caring about something enough to say something............If whomever you spoke to, that you now regret, isn't able to step back and say wow this was important to her........and ask questions and give answers..........than this wasnt a person worthy of your time anyways.......

ya mean you REact rather then think it thru and ACT on it??

ok ok i'm sure i'll pay for that but hey i think there isn't a person on here thats' never just reacted to a situation without thought first................then thought it thru and came up with different idea or action?

I don't think you need forgiveness, I think what you need is understanding from the other person.

I'm used to fuckin up,its a guy thing.

if we didn't,women wouldn't have anything to yell at us for.

but seriously,everyone says or does something in their life they regret,its simply part of being human.

Yes, sometimes things are said out of misunderstanding or ill feeling at the time.

I have absolutely been there.

Keep the line of communication open with the person you have regrets, let them know that. If you seek further connection.....that's what connection is......

Maturity understands mistakes.....

Have a great night.

Been there, done that many times.

If the person is unable to accept a sincere apology, or words are said that can't be explained with a level-cooler head aren't accepted, well that's their problem then.

Treas if they know you at all, they know how you are. You speak what you think and a person never has to wonder where they stand with you. They'll understand.

I learned a long time ago that I don't speak the same language as most everyone else. I say something that I feel is innocuous only to find out it deeply offended someone. Sorry that they were offended but not sorry that I said what I said at all. I don't see it as fucking up though lady... People are going to find a way to be offended. All of em.. I've done it, prolly do it again if I live long enough.

Some of us appreciate straight talk over irony or double talk. Don't let the bar stewards get you down.

I think Nacho said it right here and If I do say ' I'm sorry" and the person don't accept it then that person isn't worth my tears!

I don't know what the words were....but, like borachone said...
if they are half the person you are they will not hold an honest opinion against you

I totally agree......and I respect your honesty.
