Sorry, seems to be the hardest word.

I recently saw a meme, quote, or whatever you choose to call it, that hit me right where it hurts.

The words are not verbatim, and I wasn’t able to find it again, but it went something like:

“If she loves me, she’ll text.”

“If he loves me, he’ll text.”

“End of story.”

How distressing!

Can we imagine how many relationships, that may have lasted a lifetime, were stopped short because of something as ridiculous as that – miscommunication, misunderstanding, stubbornness, pride, ego – and stupidity?

It breaks my heart.

If you love and miss someone, say it. Text, call, show up on their doorstep – well, that may be a bit too stalker like. Don’t do that!

But do let it be known. And if you can, if it’s a healthy relationship that just took some wrong turns, work through it together. People are sometimes too quick in giving up. However, be sure you know the difference between giving up – and needing to walk away for valid reasons.

This goes for any relationship – family, friends, wives, husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends.

Don’t be afraid to say, “I’m sorry”, or “I was wrong”. It won’t kill you, but living with the regret just might.
