  Sorry, isn't a Nirvana thread. If you had the chance/guts, who would you apologize to and why?

  My parents.

For being ungrateful and sometimes mean through most of my high school years.

  I once promised to be a friend to someone, but Iíve never fulfilled that promise. I would apologize to her.

  I thought this was a Nirvana thread, now that I see it is not, I am leaving.


*storms out*




















I'd probably apologize to kids I bullied when I was a kid. Specifically, Niles Absalon. I still remember that kid. I feel terrible about it now.

  Around the time I turned 20, I apologized to a lot of people.

That's about the time my life changed.

If I feel like apologizing to someone, I do it. I can't stand for someone to have ill will towards me, just the same, I can't stand feeling guilty.

  I don't know...I try my hardest to help everyone that asks me to...betrayal, gossiping, violence, etc. are not part of me...I apologize to the world for not living up to its expectations and mine.

  The only people I can think of to currently apologize to are my potential children and their children and theirs too...just for not keeping and maintaining my area of the world as nicely as I could. I try but I don't think I try enough.

I still use too much water. I don't drive but I still ride around in other people's vehicles. I sometimes wash things I shouldn't down the drain. I used standard things even when I know about better alternatives. I waste engery. I waste a lot of things.

I have made some plans to improve on these things but I am so goddamn lazy. BLARGH!

  The first person who popped to mind was an ex of mine who I was pretty mean to when she broke up with me. But I did apologize to her about a year and a half ago. She said no apology was necessary, that we all do supid things when we are young. Somehow I didn't feel that it absolved me of the need to apologize.

I'm sure I will want to apologize to my kids for my lackluster attempts at fatherhood. More often than not I feel like I am floundering when it comes to raising them and helping them on their way in this world. Its entirely possible that as they get older it will become easier, but as things stand right now, I see more of my errors in raising them than anything. So in about 15 years or so I'm sure I will be giving them an apology.

My mother was another person whom I had a number of problems with, but about two years ago, before she moved to Arizona, I apologized to her for making her life more difficult than it needed to be.

So I guess a short answer would be no one right now, but I'm sure there will be more. I'm far from perfect.

For what it's worth...

The fact that you're cognizant of any shortcomings you have as a parent puts you far ahead of many others, Kuro. Parenting skills goes down on my list as one of the toughest things to do in life (just above trying to figure out what women are thinking). Now that my son is 18 and experiencing a lot of difficulties trying to figure out the obsticles life is throwing him I've become acutely aware of things I've done wrong raising him. The other day I was thinking "if only I could go back in time and apply better guidance in that part of his life". I did some really good things as a father, and I'm guilty of doing some really boneheaded things as well.
Most of all you just have to try and do what you think is best at the time. Mistakes will be made. I love my son. You love your kids, and that overcomes a multitude of sins and errors we make as parents.
When you're middle-aged and your kids are all grown up and making a life for themselves I have little doubt that they'll look back on the job you did raising them and, despite the screw ups, give you a thumbs up.

  my parents - for not embracing my legacy or taking over what my dad built. i think i let them down for pursuing my own calling in life.
my anger used to be my driving force, but now i guess i'm driven by not wanting to let them down i guess.

her - for everything that i done so wrong.

my friends - for everything i guess.

  Who was it that said... "Don't apoligize. I hate apologies. If there's something you did wrong, don't do it again. If it's something you didn't do, start doing it."

an idiot?

Actually, if someone keeps doing the same thing over and over to you, and then thinks everything's fine by repeating "I'm sorry" to you time after time...then I agree with the above saying.
But to say "don't apologize" as a rule of thumb is just dumb. A sincere apology, backed up with a genuine effort to avoid doing the same thing again goes a long way.

*and I apologize to you, Kira, for my rudeness in this reply

  Howdy Mat, how'za? This is the only thread you've posted on, what happened to DBFing on 6-10 threads before vanishing into the shadows again? 'Course if you just want to keep it down to one post on a couple of threads every other day or so, like a normal person, I won't argue with you.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Igor, would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?

Igor: And you won't be angry?

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: I will NOT be angry.

Igor: Addi someone.

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Addi someone. Addi who?

Igor: Addi Normal.
