Apology Is Kindness

--by Mish, posted Sep 12, 2021
I just called a neighbor to apologize for rudely waving her off as she approached us, while we were in the midst of an intense conversation with someone yesterday. I was stressed out at the time and forgive myself but felt very badly about it. She was very kind & kept insisting no apology was necessary and that she hadn’t felt insulted, but I told her she’d make me feel better if she allowed me to apologize. Okay, she said, apology accepted. Then we both laughed.🤣

Hopefully, I can do better next time, in a similar situation 🥴
