I no longer look to my abusers with any expectation- of remorse, or apology or restitution or restoration or relationship. I’m at peace, accepting that they won’t and can’t help me out of the mess they created. But, I’m the best qualified for that job anyway and I’m happy with the job I’m doing.
A truly humble apology works to part storm clouds, calm rough seas, and bring on the soft lights of dawn; it has the power to change a person’s world.
[I]t is dangerous for a bride to be apologetic about her husband.
Never believe you’re so great or important, so right or proud, that you cannot kneel at the feet of someone you hurt and offer a humble, sincere apology.
I am so sorry. I wish you knew even one tenth of one percent of how sorry I am. …It was my fault. Can I kill myself here, or should I do it outside, so the mess on your carpet doesn’t upset your mother?
A man, who unconditionally does agree to the unstated clause that it is only he who has to say always SORRY and never she under any damn situation, is only eligible and entitle to marry a woman.
Men don’t apologize to ladies. Whatever they do is correct.
Would ‘sorry’ have made any difference? Does it ever? It’s just a word. One word against a thousand actions.
Never apologize, mister, it’s a sign of weakness.
I’d rather apologize to you for not being who you want me to be than apologize to God for not being who I should be.
