Right now I'm personally going through a situation where I wish someone would apologize to me. I'm not going to say who or why, but deep inside I hurt and feel like that hurt won't go away unless that person would personally apologize to me.
However, I'm not stupid or blind, and I'm pretty certain that this person is NOT going to apologize to me, ever. Very likely, the person has no idea of the pain I'm feeling. And even if they did know, they wouldn't likely feel any obligation to do anything about it.
So, I guess I'm left in a position that I've often put others in.
Let's hope my hurt isn't entirely wasted.
Proverbs 20:31 Sometimes it takes a painful experience to make us change our ways.
