A very silly boy
[First Post] 16
I have learned a very important lesson over the last few days. Unfortunately, I learned it too late for myself, but far more importantly, I learned it too late for the person who had to remind me of it.
The lesson is that if you only listen to the words you want to hear, then you have already stopped listening to the person speaking those words. When you stop listening, you don't deserve to have that person speak to you at all. I did that and I hurt someone, very badly.
Saying "sorry" could never be enough to make up for the wrongs I have done. I am sorry, sorrier than I have ever been in my life, but I will not insult that person by asking them to forgive me.
I'm posting this, not to ease my conscience, but in the hope that it might stop someone, anyone, making the same mistake I did.
Well, that's it. take heed of these words and it may save someone some pain.
