you ask a simple question or address a simple situation and somebody’s defense mechanism kicks in and you don’t get the rhetorical answer you were looking for. Just answer the question as it was stated.
“Apologizing doesn’t necessarily mean you’re wrong. Sometimes it simply means that you value the relationship much more than your personal ego! It is often wiser to give up your right to be right and apologize so that you can have peace in the relationship. That doesn’t mean that you are weak or insecure, it means that you are wise, humble and mature!”—Bishop Dale C. Bronner
