At work build it up break it down–remix
For one to truly be
sorry, you have to accept responsibility for the wrong that you did and come to
terms with the fact the relationship ended because of the part you played. To
play the blame game the guise of mending a relationship after a break up will
just lead to deep bitterness and utter resentment. Therefore mending a
relationship after a break up is more of humility and repentance than who was
right and who was wrong.
, "act of breaking," from break (v.). Sense of "short interval between spells of work" (originally between lessons at school) is from 1861. Meaning "stroke of luck" is attested by 1911, probably an image from billiards (where the break that starts the game is attested from 1865). Meaning "stroke of mercy" is from 1914. Musical sense, "improvised passage, solo" is attested from 1920s in jazz.
