My point is that via Facebook I have been forced to confront several (yes, more than a couple) people that I hurt in the past. And by forced, let me say that I wanted to clear the air, of course, and initiated the contact. But, it is a humbling (and somewhat humiliating) experience and one that I hope to come out of a better person. I also hope that it allows the people I hurt some closure. Mostly, I hope to come away with my (old) friends forgiveness.
Have any of you experienced something similar? How did you get through it? Did the person forgive you? Were you able to be friends again? Was your friendship the same/better/or worse? Did you regret making amends?
