Sometimes when you burn bridges by saying bad things about people, you cannot re-build those bridges.  Sometimes it is just too late, because then you just come across as a hypocrit.  I've done it, everyone has, but I guess it comes down to learning not to do it again, simply saying you're sorry; change your ways; repair the bridges while you can.  Otherwise it might just be too late.
