It’s never too late to apologize for being a dick, bros. We’re all dicks at one point or another and even if we regret it, we often don’t take the initiative to let the people we hurt know we were dicks. I think I’m going to stop saying the word ‘dick’ now. But often times, apologizing does just as much good for the apologizer as it does the apologizee. Those are made up words. As my grandfather recently told me, “the first to apologize in the bravest, the first to forgive is the strongest, and the first to forget is the happiest.” Ok, I read that on a bumper sticker. My grandfather’s been dead for 10 years.
Louie Amundson was asked by his 10-year-old daughter if he’s ever bullied someone. He thought back to his high school days when he incessantly picked on his classmate, ChadMichael Morrisette. (His name most likely didn’t help his cause.) Louie felt obliged to send a message to his victim in an attempt to bury the hatchet.
Morrisette, who is now a visual designer and brand consultant in Hollywood, told Yahoo Parenting:
“The entire football team bullied me.
It wasn’t one guy, it was six or seven guys who would follow me in the hallways, harassing me, insulting me, threatening my life.”
Bro moves all around.
