A cowardly or disgusting act practiced by the weaklings; however, most arrogant and prideful folks reluctantly or insincerely do it to make the victim happy and feel vindicated.
In life, especially in business circles and politics, making an apology is seldom an option, although doing so may make one feel that it’s beneath one’s dignity.

Does not always mean that you are wrong and the other person is right. It just means that you value your relationship more than your ego.

A way of appearing to say 'sorry' when actually you mean "fuck you for highlighting our mistake. We'll fix it, but not to please you. Don't think I'll forget this any time soon".

Apologies come after a big event, say you bumped into someone at the store or the hallway or you said mean things to them on vacation or at work. It doesn’t have to be immediately but an apology always comes and is always appreciated, typically when followed up with candy or flowers or roses or other small (or big, hey no complaining here 👋🏾 ) tokens of your affection. What am I telling you for though, you already do know, you do know don’t you?
I loved his apology because in his apology he saw me, he knew exactly when and where to give apologies...he’s better at it than me.
One of the costliest speeches one could ever hope to make. The worst of them rob you of your pride, your dignity, your very soul; a further cost is the energy used to prevent oneself from further bearating (or physically assaulting) the individual on the receiving end of said apology.
Fuck, dude. If I'd had to look her ex in the eye and offer an apology, I'd have to surrender my testicles as well.
