People who have been poorly treated tend to say they are sorry for almost everything and apologizing is a way of life for them. If a child is mistreated they end up saying they are sorry for any minor thing. A number of the videos on Facebook show abuse of children lately. I am not quite sure why but I cannot bear to watch them. The adults, usually step parents are cruel and violent. This goes beyond anything and even a few seconds is too much. We all make mistakes. For example, when a person in a marriage cheats they may do a great deal of apologizing. However, it does not change the fact that they were untrue. They have a mind and made the decision in a rational manner. It doesn’t matter what excuses they present, they still did it. Some marriage partners forgive and others refuse and they end up separating if not married or divorced. I have known very few men who were faithful over the years to their wives. Many settle down when they reach middle age as they do not wish to be alone. Whatever mistakes a child makes they need to learn right from wrong and be forgiven. There are situations that occur in our lives that may take a very long time to let go and forgive. However, without forgiving it destroys you in many ways. Holding a grudge never does anyone any good. It doesn’t solve anything. Letting go may not be easier but it is definitely healthier.
