This 5 letter word can start the healing of hurt, or start the hurt itself. We have all said it, and we've all had it said to us. Life is hard, it's never easy. This word is our only way of verbally conveying our regret.
This word can be important in any relationship but in a trucking relationship, it is extremely important. There are a lot of missed birthdays, anniversaries, and hurt that comes along with all those missed events.
Sorry is something that shouldn't just be said, it should be acted out if you want the person or people to believe you mean it. This word without action is meaningless. When I say action, I don't necessarily mean flowers and presents. With some people and some circumstances, this may work. With most people they just want you to make a conscious effort to try to right the wrong.
Now I understand that in the trucking industry this is extremely hard to do. You are going to miss events, you are going to have to say sorry. Now spouses, you have to be understanding that the trucking industry isn't always going to allow your trucker to get home in time for these special events. You have to understand that they are doing the absolute best that they can to make it home.
This word, as I said, can be the beginning of the healing process of hurt, or it can be the start of the hurt itself. For truckers, please try to understand that when you can't be home for the special events, your spouses are going to be hurt. Spouses please try to be understanding that missing things is completely out of their control. This is all part of the life we have to deal with as trucker's families.
