Holding onto the thought that you may have hurt someone's feelings, wasted their time in someway, said something you later regretted, or forgot to do something that you promised to do is mental space that should always be cleared. Releasing negative or non-productive thoughts frees up your mind to focus on the good things, the positive things and the productive things that you can do to help yourself and help others.
Try this today .... Take the high road. Consider any situations where you might have hurt someone's feelings or disappointed them in some way. Then ... reach out to offer an apology. No need to explain "the why" it happened or why you did what you did. Just apologize ... A simple "I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings. Please accept my apology, and I'll make sure this kind of thing doesn't happen again."
To whom can YOU offer an apology TODAY? Take the time to make the call or to say it in person. You'll feel better .... they'll feel better.
