..sonnet 116..

let me not to the marriage of true minds
admit impediments. love is not love
which alters when it alteration finds,
or bends with the remover to remove:

o no! it is an ever-fixed mark
that looks on tempests and is never shaken;
it is the star to every wandering bark,
whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

love's not time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks,
within his bending sickle's compass come:
love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
but bear it out even to the edge of doom.

if this be error and upon me be proved,
i never writ, nor no man ever loved.

sorry seems to be the hardest word,
..forgiving seems to be the hardest act.

is it so..?

i read somewhere in the internet that,
- apologise
- asking for help
- say "thank you"

are among the hardest things man can ever said,
..and by man, i mean anyone who ever breathe.

this happens most probably because they are too eager to defend their ego.
they are too proud to say "i'm sorry",
too arrogant to ask for a helping hand,
and swollen with pride to even appreciate.

some even rather to lose a friend than to say "i'm sorry",
some prefer to fight a losing battle than to ask for help,
and some do not have "thank you" in their dictionary.
..what an attitude!!

i was surprise to receive a text message from my best friend the other day,
he apologised for something he neglected to do,
which to me is really nothing,
consider his circumstance at that particular moment,
i totally understand why he did what he did,
but he surprised me with a humble apology,
and that,
has made my day!!

is it worth to lose a friendship over one's ego..?
is it so hard to admit one's weakness and apologise..?
i am not saying ego is bad,
we need it somewhere,
but make sure we know how to control our ego,
and our emotion.

admit your weakness and apologise,
ask for help when you know you need one,
and don't forget to appreciate those who be there for you.

for your humble action,
..could mend some fences.

god bless!!
