I find it excruciatingly hard to apologize... even when I know I am in the wrong and I know I should I just don’t... it’s easy to say sorry to some stranger or an acquaintance... but to closer friends and to closest relatives it’s just impossible. Any clue how I can break that wall?
Ask yourself what is the primary difference between a good death and a bad death? It is regret. A bad death is primarily due to regret that the dying person struggles to overcome no matter what.
So, to die well you must be free of regret. Now, why die without any regret? During the process of dying, regret will not allow your mind or consciousness to be at peace. A disturbed mind or consciousness, when you are at your weakest, will only increase the pain as you fade away.
If you don’t want to apologize to others, just apologize and regret to your inner self first. Do it again and again, until it starts making a lasting inner change that the apology reflects. It will take time, but the offended person will see this inner change and feel it without your words. Let it flow and let your actions say more than the words, every day.
Let the words not hold good deeds. The good deeds will lessen the burden of saying the apology. And then by the time you say the words, your deeds would have spoken the apology much more strongly and sincerely.
