Doesn't it make you feel better when someone gives a heartfelt apology? So much meaning is contained in those two words "I'm sorry"; they're verbal honey. You know they're sorry that they hurt or upset you. They've given it thought. They want you to feel better. These things are important to smooth over the bumps in a relationship.
