I don't like insincere apologies. I'd prefer to wait for them to come to their senses, and then they will say it for real. I'm the type to forgive quickly once they do. Don't like people who never apologies. Sorrys have to come from the heart. Saying it for the sake of saying it is stupid. Now.. why did you ask that question. Did your parents force you to apologise for something? or am i reading too much into your age?
Both sort of, some people want to assert some control by demanding something and some people want to know that you empathise and feel pain - some want both.
Empathy and caring aren't the same however. I can turn empathy on like a switch, but caring would be how I felt about the situation ba
I want an apology to be sincere amd from the heart. I want people to be sincere and genuine and not lie to me.
Sorry they got caught... Sorry someone with more power didn't take their side... Oh, they are sorry.
I doubt it.
