In this life, when you deny someone an apology, you will remember it at time you beg forgiveness.
~ Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was An Ancient Astronaut
Sometimes one apologizes to keep the peace. Sometimes because they want that which is happening now to just stop. Sometimes they do it out of fear…for their own self…for someone they love. Sometimes because they want to keep relationships intact. Sometimes so those that they love will gather around the family table to give thanks. Sometimes because they are mature enough, wise enough to realize that it is time to move on and the only way to move on is to apologize.
Weakness it is not.
Weak is to refuse the apology offered as you build up your walls with your blocks and barricades.
