Sure, as we grow up we are taught that if we do or say something that we shouldn’t have said, then we should apologize. Unfortunately, not all people accept this life lesson.
Well to be completely honest apologizing for something you did wrong is never as easy as we make it out to be. Depending on what someone is apologizing for it could be the hardest thing they have ever done. That being said, not everyone is going to see things the same way you do, just because you think something needs an ‘I’m sorry’ over doesn’t mean the other person is going to.
While sometimes the lack of an apology can be a defensive thing it tends to run much deeper than that. There can be a lot of things holding someone back from owning up to their mistakes. Whether it be their ego, sense of self, or anything in-between.
Below I am going to go over some of the reasons why sometimes people will just never be willing to give others the apologizes that they deserve. While this won’t make it all better, it will give you a little more insight as to why the person you’re thinking of is doing what he or she is doing. Sometimes there is a lot more to the situation than you realize. Sometimes people are just incapable of saying they are sorry and that is not your fault.
7 Reasons Why Some People Will Never Give You The Apology That You Deserve:
1. Saying sorry means they have to admit they have done something wrong.
When it comes to apologizing saying you are sorry to someone is admitting that you were in the wrong or have done something wrong. Not everyone is able to do this. Some people have a very hard time owning up to their mistakes and wrongdoings.
2. They don’t have the self-esteem/strength to face you and apologize.
Sometimes apologizing can be embarrassing and uncomfortable. Not everyone has the self-esteem to approach someone they have wronged and tell them their peace. They might not be able to find the courage within to approach you.
3. They are just too stubborn for their own good.
Some people know they have done something wrong but are just too stubborn to apologize for it. These people are stuck in their ways and make everything more complicated than it has to be. They aren’t going to apologize until it is either too late to make a difference or there is no longer anyone around to apologize to.
4. They think that apologizing will make things worse.
Sometimes apologizing is just adding fuel to the fire and people tend to realize this. While you might deserve an apology that doesn’t mean getting one is going to make things better. Some people just don’t think that saying something will do any good so they don’t.
5. They just don’t know how to apologize.
Some people didn’t grow up being told that apologizing was important. They just didn’t get taught properly how to or what deemed it necessary, sure this is no excuse but it does mean some people aren’t quite as skilled at it as the rest. Perhaps the person you’re dealing with just doesn’t know how to go about apologizing in the first place.
6. They don’t feel like they’ve done anything wrong.
Sometimes when someone does something bad they don’t realize it or if they upset you they might not quite know what made you upset in the first place. If they don’t think they’ve done anything wrong they won’t feel the need to say sorry. This is just how thing work.
7. They don’t want to be seen as weak.
Some people refuse to apologize because they don’t want to come off as weak. They want to be in a power position no matter what. Their ego will not allow them to say they’re sorry.
