That old movie quote "Love means never having to say you are sorry," never made sense to me. I assumed if I hurt someone I love, of course I should apologize. I heard the quote again recently, and I think I finally understand the meaning. If you love someone and know they love you back any action taken will be done for your benefit in mind and vice versa. Someone who loves you wants the best for you. Like a loving parent towards a child, no actions are done to purposely hurt the child. Even if a mistake was made, forgiveness is granted since love is unconditional. After meditating on the quote further, I stumbled upon one of the biggest obstacles we face in communicating with other people. We want those we care about to respect our thoughts and feelings, but many people in our lives don't really care about us. We can't force someone to think of our best interest equal to their own. We can't force love. There are only a few people you will meet in your life that will love you unconditionally and for those rare wonderful people, you will never have to say you are sorry. They will love you forever.
