Last week, I shared a photo to my Facebook wall about why saying "Sorry" does not repair relationships. I then posed the question: "What's missing?"

Years ago, my mentor, Pani Slavka Zabrodsky, shared with me the secret to authentic reconcilliation: forgiveness. It is not enough to forgive. We must ask forgiveness of others.

Yes, we should forgive others. No, others might not forgive us. But the next time you're tempted to patch up a misunderstanding or a real wrong with a "Sorry," (while you may or may not be thinking, "Hey, I said, 'I'm sorry.'"), try this:

"I'm sorry. Will you forgive me?"

And mean it.

Just a thought.
