Making Midlife Amends

AARP has a great and thoughtful piece about learning how to say sorry as you get older. Everyone has their regrets towards the ones they love, and when one gets on in age, making reparations can be the best thing -- not just for the person involved, but for yourself:
By the time we reach midlife, most of us have accumulated a good deal of unfinished business. Even when we're not conscious of them, those lingering grudges, careless snubs, unkept promises and fractured relationships can weigh us down. These negative feelings can keep us from seeing the best parts of ourselves and inhibit us from acting on the opportunities we all get, each and every day, to be loving, generous and kind.
Fortunately, it's never too late to make amends. In fact, it turns out that the over-50 stage of life may be the best one for righting past wrongs.
Check out the whole piece.
