“I like the Jewish example of saying you’re sorry to everyone at least once a year. When you think about it, it’s doubtful you haven’t done something in a year to hurt someone’s feelings, even if you didn’t realize it at the time. That person may be harboring pain or ill will, and a simple, “Please forgive me if I’ve hurt you” can do wonders in making it go away.” ~Mitch Albom, in the Detroit Free Press
