04 Dec Closeness Guaranteed
The affection that comes from making up far exceeds anything you can gain by clinging to your point, resentment, hurt, or receiving the apology you need desperately for your bruised ego.
Sally had been upset with Hal for a long time. When she finally unloaded on him she cut him down verbally. It was obvious that her words were chosen to hurt him and they dishonored all of his good qualities. He admitted to himself that there was truth in her complaints. He knew he could improve the problem areas and actually looked forward to working on them with her, but he was hurt and needed an apology. Time went by, the he apology never came and they got on with lives.
