Imagine you’ve been hurt by someone. Now imagine that person says, “I’m sorry.” What happens? Does everything jump back to the way it was before you were hurt? No. Damage is done, and at best it takes time to forgive and move on. You may never forget.
“Throw a plate on the ground.
Did it break?
Say sorry to it.
Did it go back to the way it was before?
Do you understand?”
People are fragile. Handle with care.
