i really hate it when people apologize for the sake of apologizing, not really because they realized they did something wrong. i feel that it just aggravates the pain that was inflicted on you. just don't sorry when you don't mean it.

for me that is correct because what is the use of saing sorry if you reall desnt mean it? rght? theres a big tendency that you will do the same roblem again because you never mean it.

I agree yes there is possibility to do the same and hurt people as they don't mean it and don't realize that they did a mistake .

I agree with you. I hear this statement so often and it's never meant with a sincere look, it would be no different than the person saying "hi!" If you are truly sorry, then go ahead and apologize, but tack some compassion to it. I think people say "sorry" just out of habit, like if someone says "hi, how are you today?" They really don't want to hear a fifteen minute story on how your health is. They are being polite. Don't apologize unless you mean it, and if you really are sorry, seek the person out, apologize yourself and be sincere.

I think when a person apologizes, it just shows that he admits into doing something wrong and thus does an apology for it. But if you feel that that person is just apologizing just for the sake of apologizing, then maybe it is because the guilt he felt isn't that great and not because he did not realize that he did something wrong.

Yes because sorry should not be overstated and it should be said sincerely. I feel worse when I say sorry but not really meaning it. I feel like my pride is wounded. So I always say sorry when I'm okay and when I don't feel grudges anymore and when I really feel like doing it.

Most of the people nowadays are like that.the true essense of sorry is not well being used.they just say sorry to end things up and so that it will not disturb them anymore.

I can relate. I hate that, too. I don't like when people apologize for the sake of apologizing, like just to end an argument but not fully realize that they did something wrong. I feel a bit offended actually. They might as well not apologize. Of course I'd be mad if they walked away and not apologize, but I'd rather they do that than apologize but not mean it. It's just that, meaningless and not heartfelt. It makes me more frustrated than I was to begin with.

i agree completely some people say sorry and thanks just like that not with the real intention that they feel so. i see such people almost every week, even some of my friends are like that. Yes it just aggravates the pain. It has become a fashion for some people.

I think that one should say sorry when they realize how wrong they were and how much they have hurt the other person. What is the use of saying sorry if you do not know what harm you have done? All the more that it makes us feel worse than ever.

I agree with you. I think sometimes people just say they're sorry because they realize that they may have hurt someone's feelings or that it may be the right thing to do to make someone else feel better, but you're right. If you're not sorry or it's something that you would do again given the chance and still not feel bad about it, then you shouldn't apologize!
