Something I’ve noticed in society…while an apology I often hear it go like this:
Person 1: “I’m Sorry.” Person 2: “It’s okay. I forgive you.”
And in my head, I’m like: “No…it’s not okay.” Mind you, I hear this almost all the time when dealing with kids. And something I’ve been doing recently in the part month was telling them to reply with “I forgive you. But don’t do it again.”
And really, it should be like that in every apology. Because no matter what the person apologizing to you for did, it was obviously not okay. It made you upset to the point where you demanded an apology. Don’t give the idea that it was ‘okay’. Because it obviously wasn’t. Not only does it give mixed messages to the person apologizing, but you’re lying to yourself.
Just to be clear—-It should be: Person 1: “I’m sorry.” Person 2: “Don’t do it again.”
Because if the person does it again, they deserve no forgiveness the second time.
I took this photo on my second day in Peru. This was in Sacsayhuaman, and this woman was with her llama selling small gloves and hats. But I really loved her traditional attire, the colors are always so bright and lovely.
PHEW. So I’ve been working on this for about 3 hours. I’m not sure how many people are familiar with the Book and Animated Movie of “The Last Unicorn”. Either way, I used to—well, still love that movie. So I decided to doodle ‘Amalthea’…I’m still working on it. Maybe I’ll finish it up after finals.
