question of the day…is it ever too late to apologize…and if so, why???

First let me start off by saying that I freaking hate having to apologize.  When in situations when an apology is necessary, I believe in doing it on spot and getting it over with. This is why I always try my best to leave my (big) ego out of situations and just serve the greater good.

However depending on the offense that’s done to me, an apology is a cool and nice gesture when done immediately, but it truly doesn’t make much of a difference as times passes on…regardless of how genuine it is.

    I’m the same exact way – honestly I run away from it hoping they would just forget about it.
    I agree with you 100% though

    Too late to be forgiven? or too late for it to be legitimate?

    How about a situation where someone grows up, and apologizes, even when their act or misdeed is lost in memory? Is that not to be respected?

    Whether or not the apology is legit, to me, is the only consideration. Some people say sorry as a gut reaction, because they’re supposed to, not because they are SORRY

    Either way, assholes should be forgiven for their fuckups, even before they apologize. Not for them, but for your own peace of mind. Holding a grudge against someone just takes up space in your head. And its a negative emotion.. those just fester, nothing good comes from them. Let them deal with their own negative emotions, which guaranteed will result from their wrongdoings.

    Its much better to just avoid people who are not trustworthy.

    Always forgive, never forget
