Use of subjunctive with sentir que

Does the use of the subjunctive change the meaning from “we feel” to “we’re sorry”?  

Example: 

Nosotros sentimos que no vengas con nosotros.

We're sorry that you're not coming with us

Hola Marcos

Yes, it does!  You can use sentir que with both, the indicative and the subjunctive, but with the latter the meaning is different. 

Siento que nuestra relación no va bien.

I feel like our relationship is not going well.

Siento que nuestra relación no vaya bien.

I'm sorry that our relationship is not going well. 

Very interesting comment : ))
