Sorry doesn’t have to be the hardest word

him: What did you apologize for? You didn’t do anything wrong.
me: Because I hurt her feelings, and for that, I am truly sorry.

If you can’t apologize for what happened, can you find it in your heart to acknowledge the pain, frustration, fear, anxiety that was created with a simple apology?

So true. My boyfriend from time to time will ask me why I am sorry about the pain he feels from a medical condition he has. "It's not your fault," he'll say. And I will respond that saying I'm sorry is not necessarily an admission of guilt or blame. I have used this example before: if your best friend's mother dies and you say that you are so sorry, does that imply that you killed her mother? Of course not!
