Today I want to apologise.🙏
If you’ve read my blog on “Apologies in the modern day“, you’d have also known of the personal example I gave there.
A couple of days ago, I happened to talk to one of those people. And after the talks I realised what miserable deed I had performed.
I presumed that they were partying when I was sulking. But the truth was far from what I knew— A friend had some serious issues and was low. The others gathered around him for support and put up a cheering little environment to make him feel better.
I apologised to them right away and am apologising to them again via this blog. I wrote about that in my blog so the apology also requires to be public.
I'm really ashamed and apologetic of the miscommunication and my words which may have hurt you. I felt absolutely terrible when I got to know of the truth and still feel apologetic.
I'm really sorry.
This incident tells us how dangerous miscommunication and misinformation can be.
And if someone reads my blog seriously and looks up to it, I’ve some requests to you-
I request you all to consider communicating and talking about something with someone before we conclude anything.
And please, NORMALISE THE CLEARING OUT OF MISCOMMUNICATIONS. 🙏
Let’s normalise the act of going out of our way and “talking” over the topic that has bugged/ troubled you.
Agreed, it is easier to just hold back and conclude. But it isn’t justified. Remember that the person and the relationship you have with the person is worth much more than your pride and misinformation.
Also, if someone walks upto you to try to clear out something that they felt bad about you, please be the bigger person and understand that it takes immense trust and courage to come up to talk about something. Don’t judge them or foul talk behind their backs. They chose you over their pride and walked that extra mile to keep you intact in their lives.
Remember- the world needs kindness and the relationships are worth much more than we often value.
