About This Episode
When was the last time you apologized to someone you only casually knew? When we think about saying we’re sorry, we usually begin with the people we are closest to: our spouses, our parents, our siblings, our children and close friends. Rarely does apologizing extend beyond those outside our tight inner circle. Using the principles of atonement, as practiced at this time during the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, host Mitch Albom goes through the list of apologies and discusses how you can apply these principles to your daily life.
It is a good way to be to ask others to forgive you. So Mitch if there is anything that I have done in the last year that has hurt you please forgive me.
I have always had the mind set that every day is a new day, a fresh start. Spouses are the first person that one always says that they are sorry for doing something.
I know that I have been hurt by people throughout the year over and over without anyone saying they were sorry for anything. It is the behavior that has become normal . I don’t agree with it but it exists. Some people always hold grudges no matter what. Like I said every day is a new day to start over again and do better than the day before. I don’t wake up with the same things that bothered me the day before. It would be a nice gesture if someone ever said they were sorry for a lot of different things. It would be better. I have never gotten in the habit of saying I was sorry unless it was something of great nature. I agree with the practice. It does sound good.
