What's with people that never apologize?
Kind of interesting, as I was musing over this just recently, I found this article. There's have been many in my life that seem incapable of it. Curious of other alternative explanations as well.

"When it’s boiled down, the act of saying sorry is an admission of having done something wrong. For some people, admitting wrongdoing is not possible, even when they feel bad about their actions and know they are in the wrong. It’s odd to witness, but this never-sorry person can actually be remorseful while still refusing to utter the two words that would right their wrong.

To be able to admit that we’ve done something wrong requires a certain level of self-esteem or ego strength. People who are deeply insecure can find it challenging to apologize, in part because a single mistake has the power to obliterate their entire self-worth. The idea that they could make a mistake and still be a valuable and good person is unthinkable for someone whose self-esteem is severely lacking.

An apology is an admission of fallibility, which can trigger the vast reservoir of inadequacy and shame they carry, and thus threaten the fragile narrative they’ve constructed about themselves. For a person with a damaged sense of self-worth, acknowledging an error can be tantamount to annihilation."

That's what I think...

"And then there are those who refuse to say sorry because they lack empathy, and don’t actually feel sorry that you were hurt by their actions. They believe that an apology is only appropriate for situations in which they purposefully caused you harm. There’s no sorry deserved or indicated when the pain you felt was not intentionally caused and thus not “technically” their fault. Your hurt, in and of itself, has no particular value to them."

Re: What's with people that never apologize?
I have a friend who told me that I say sorry a lot.

I told him......sorry and then.......oh shit! You are right!

I resolved to correct that oversight and did.

I do however refuse to apologize to someone who should apologize to me first. I did that once and the cuck acted like he was the one who was wronged when it was in fact me that was in the right all along.

Nope. I refuse to apologize for someone else' bad behavior.

I can say I'm sorry but it's def. not easy. The right thing to do tho. I have an inlaw family member who is a chronic never sorry person who has given me so much grief over the years. I have learned to deal.

Good article OP, as I was just thinking about this today, dealing with said in law.

There is a lot to be said about the way people communicate.

I used to answer with rote when someone would ask how are you today?

Now I tell them I am still on this side of the dirt, so doing better than many. How about you?

Most of the time they give me a blank semi amused stare and ignore further conversation.

Re: What's with people that never apologize?
Another possibility other than what's been mentioned is they may have had a bad experience with an unforgiving person who's unable to graciously accept an apology, most likely a family member.

There are some people, if you apologize to them, they'll view it as a weakness, a chance to get the upper hand, an opportunity to manipulate you, browbeat you into submission, and make all kinds of unreasonable demands, saying that you have to prove that you're sorry by giving up this and sacrificing that and changing this and that, and be sure to walk on egg shells and have your entire existence revolve around the person you just apologized to from now on.
