“An apology means nothing if you are just going to do it again”
Nobody is perfect so from time to time we do things wrong. When this happens we just claim to be human and expect forgiveness, after all, we apologised right?
Some of us have perfected the dark arts of emotional manipulation so yes, we know how to apologise and beg, some will even “cry you a river” just till you say it’s okay and instantly the tears dry up quicker than the Atacama.
Apologies can be used as tools of manipulation but you’d be mistaken to think they don’t have expiry points.
By the way, you are the one apologising, you don’t get the right to decide when it should be accepted. That’s up to the person you have wronged.
