How are you when it comes to apologising?

I know there are some people who find it difficult to apologise. Sometimes some people have never made an apology in their whole entire life. Others have been apologetic for no apparent reason.

I just wanted to know, if you knew you were in the wrong, do you acknowledge it straight away or be in total denial about it?

  • I'm sorry but I can't answer that. Sorry if that frustrates you. I'm sorry for making you feel that way. If my apology isn't enough, then I'm sorry for that, too. I would also like to take this opportunity to apologize for all my excessive apologies.

    ;)

  • I always apologize because it's childish to defend yourself when you're clearly wrong. I will only try to prove myself innocent when I'm actually innocent.

  • I don't like losing an argument, so if I see the slightest chance to win that argument or prove that I'm right, I won't apologize. If they've clearly proven me wrong, I will apologize.
    When it comes to doing something wrong, I will apologize immediately, like bumping into someone, or stuff like that.

  • If I am in the wrong I will apologise but I expect others to do the same for me if they do something wrong. I don't have any time or patience for people that don't take responsibility for their actions or admit when they are in the wrong. If I had a girlfriend that refused to take responsibility for her actions and apologise when she was in the wrong she would eventually end up dumped.

    • So if your friend said to you "Hey, why don't we go shopping for 8 hours, get our nails done etc etc" you would be like "no thanks."

    • I don't really get my nails done haha but shopping yeah sure

  • They have to really PROVE I was wrong before I'll formally apologize.

  • My family doesn't say sorry. We elect to keep to ourselves for like a week and then the issue is considered resolved.

    If we fight with each other we go off to stew and then after a week we act like nothing happened. No one says sorry for anything.

    • Does it bother you that your family is like that?

    • Not really, no. Apologies are awkward. We don't like being that open with people. We're more of the It-Happened-Get-Over-It people.

  • i don't apologize easily, because i don't believe in saying i'm sorry if i'm not. however, i know when it's warranted and will cop to it if i've legit hurt someone i love.

    that said~ i am responsible only for my words and not your selective interpretation thereof. if you twist my words to suit your purpose, you're trying way too hard to be offended, and i don't give a shit about your delicate sensitivities.

    • I take things for it's literal meaning. No need to worry.

  • I apologize when I know I've been in the wrong. And even if I don't think I've been in the wrong, I might apologize because I don't want a fight or anything similar to jeopardize my friendship/relationship with someone. However I'm not a pushover, if I start to realize that I'm always the one apologizing for everything despite the fact that it might not have been my fault directly, then that friendship/relationship is not worth having or being in anymore. I want to surround myself with people who can admit when they're wrong and apologize for it. If I'm the only one trying to save the friendship, then it's clearly not worth saving.

  • It depends on whether or not I'm right.
    A lot of times I will think that I'm right, even if I'm not.
    And when I find out that I'm wrong, I don't apologize right away because my pride gets wounded and I don't like to admit it.
    But I always do apologize.

    My fiance hears a lot of "remember earlier today when we argued about... well, I was wrong and I'm sorry." Then we'll laugh it off. He says that I'm very stubborn, which is true.

  • If I'm not in the wrong then I won't back down at all unless they can really prove me wrong.

    Sometimes I do have issues admitting I was wrong even though I know I was. Which is petty and stupid. Plus I have a hard time knowing how to truly apologize. The biggest thing about it is I have a problem where I keep repeating the same mistakes. I don't do it on purpose but i keep doing it. So after a point I feel like apologizing ends up not being enough even if I am sorry. Why should they trust my apology when I keep repeating the same mistakes. :(

  • If I feel I'm in the wrong or did something I shouldn't have, I will apologize. At times, I will be that person saying I'm sorry for no reason. That's usually because I am harder on myself (like most people) and the other person really didn't care or notice whatever I thought I did wrong.

  • I only apologize when I feel like it. I'm very blunt and I say exactly how I feel so it's your choice on how you take it. My opinion will remain my opinion whether or not you're offended. I will apologize if I truly feel sorry about what I said or when offering condolences to other people such as "I'm sorry for your loss" etc and yes I do mean that when I say it :) I rarely apologize for what I say but if I step on your shoes or knock you I say sorry. Every time I go to the supermarket I'm saying sorry mostly because I daydream so I'll be in someone's way or I'll push out my cart at the same time lol T. T

    • Right it's embarrassing lol O. o

    • Haha never! It happens to the better of us haha

  • It's not easy to get an apology out of me because I speak the truth, but in the cases that I am wrong or or I have offended someone I'm not afraid to apologize. I just say what I 've to say and they can rake it or leave it.

  • It depends on if the person rubs me the wrong way or not. If it's someone I genuinely care about and don't mind talking to them then I'm quick to apologize.

    But if it's someone I don't really know and don't care for then I won't apologize.

    But yea, I ain't apologising if it ain't my fault. No matter what, it ain't happening. I once did to save a friendship and got burned for it even though it wasn't my fault to begin with. I learnt something that day

  • I'm the kind of person who apologises all the time (yep one of them people) in England people tend to apologise a lot, once I bumped into this guy on my way to work and he apologised even though I was the one who had bumped into him and nearly made him fall over (just one example among many). However now when it comes to arguments and I am not in the wrong I will not apologise for something I don't believe in or that I didn't do for example, if it creates bad blood though I will call for a truce.

  • If I know I was wrong, I apologize about 50% of the time. Otherwise, I won't apologize. Prioritizing relationships over being right is admirable, of course, but I won't go down that route. I won't let people walk all over me, they do that enough as it is. So if they overreacted or are otherwise wrong, they can apologize to me or they can act grumpy as long as it takes. I don't care.
