Frequently. It's the only way to maintain healthy relationships, especially intimate ones.

There are many occasions where I find out what I did that was wrong and after gaining understanding I then feel I want to apologize.

Then there are the times where I do see things differently, but the bottom line is my actions were nonetheless hurtful, whether or not I intended them to be. Therefore I need to at least apologize for that.

The pews never miss a sermon but that doesn't get them one step closer to Heaven.

But at least the pews never attend yoga!
