Thursday Three – Apologies

In speaking with Momma last night, it came to light that I was even more of an butthead than I recall being. I won’t get into what I said or did, but I felt like a giant pile of poop for it. I’m rarely ashamed, but I came close.

I texted then called to apologize…even though it’s been a good 10 years since I did it. It also got me thinking about other apologies I should issue that I might not have issued yet and came up with three that should cover most of my transgressions. They are in no particular order.

  1. I’m sorry for every time I treated a store clerk or like employee with less than decent manners. My bad day shouldn’t have been taken out on you. I am sorry.  To those of you who I thought deserved it at the time? I’m sorry I stooped to your level.
  2. I’m sorry to friends and family members (including that Guy I Like) other than my parents who I’ve hurt through words, lack there of, my actions or inactions. I really have the best friends and you deserve to be treated better. I’m sorry I couldn’t rise to the occasion when needed, took something out on you when you didn’t deserve it, or took our friendships for granted.
  3. To my parents and siblings. I was a total shithead sometimes and I’m sorry. You guys  are really great people and have made me who I am today. (Hopefully we can agree that it’s at the least a decent thing.)  While I know it’s part of growing up, I am sorry for having my head up my butt, being a big jerk, and being unkind at times. I hope I can make up for it in choosing your retirement homes.

I could likely apologize to others, but that’s a good start. Who would you apologize to? What would you say?

    I would apologize to my best friend Mimi for leaving her when she most needed me. I chose to take the easy way and remove myself from a bad situation. A good best friend would have hung in there and given her right arm before letting the 20 year friendship go down the drain. Granted the situation was toxic, I should have never walked away. I’m very grateful to have her back in my life and have learned a great lesson. On another note, your parents did raise you to be an awesome person, I know that because no matter how hard I try I just can’t picture you being a shithead.

  2. I’d apologize to an old friend, Steve. Who told me that I was going down the wrong road… and I didn’t listen. Instead, I disrespected him, and was stubborn. I wish I could mend those bonds.

    I would apologize to my ex – again – for being what I now recognize as completely difficult, and often unnecessarily bitchy. I didn’t know it then, but it was fixable and I wish I had done so a lot sooner. I think he took a lot more than he deserved. (He knows this, but there are some things for which you just can’t apologize enough.)

    I would apologize to my Dad and Nanny for the times I was a bratty kid. They were few and far between (I think) and it’s not like it was tolerated. But as an adult, I know better, and I know I was wrong.

    I would apologize to my good friend, who asked me to help her with a project. I procrastinated, we lost touch, and I feel like I let her down.

    And I agree with Robbie – I can’t picture you being a shithead.
