Exercise- some simple weight exercises
Calories- none so far today
So this post isn;t really about my weight, but I can't think about that 100% of the time!
I have a friend (male) who has a habit of being late. He doesn't really do it on purpose, it's just like he does all this other stuff that keep pushing back his arrival time until he finally walks in the door. He did this again this morning. Of course we got into a little bit of an argument over it, and he asked me "OK, you're right, you're right! Does that make it all better?" (or something like that, you get the point)
That is a valid question. If we already have an apology, why do we want to hear that we were right? Isn't the apology alone an admission of that? What does the "rightness" matter after that? Does it change what just happened? No. So what I realized is that the admission that we are right is something I really want when the offense is something the other person does regularly. And I don;t want theadmission that I am right because of some ego trip, or as some weird admission that it won;t happen again(because if it has already happen 110 time, why would we really expect the 111th will happen any differently?)
Really, it is just to make future arguments over that thing easier. It means that the next time we won't have to try to convince that person they were wrong, using debating skills worthy of the Harvard Debate Team to convince them just to issue the two little words "I'm sorry". It is because the next time(and hte 1000 times after that) they do that thing, whatever it happens to be, instead of arguing you can just say "Remember the last time this happened?" Get them to remember they told you you were right, and viola! We have an insta-apology. Just add water and stir. So the apologies are for the past, the admission of correctness is an investment for the future.
