Nonetheless, words are not to be taken lightly... once it is said, you can't take it back. A joke said wrongly, a remark made sarcastically, an honest opinion said without thinking of the hearer's emotion... once said, it can't be taken back.
Call it being sensitive, but no one wants to feel as a lesser human.... I'm really sorry for hurting you with my words. It doesn't make me feel any better for saying what I did. I'm sorry....
