I’m sorry offers an admittance of being wrong. It’s a heartfelt and welcome phrase to start the peace between two parties when the storm passes.
I knew I was right says, “You’re still wrong, and I will continue not listening to you.”
And the combination, “I’m sorry but I’m right.” says a lot about where you stand when it comes to your view of yourself.
Emotional reparation doesn’t need our pride or ego, but it needs us to be willing to accept the faults we all naturally hold.
