They're assholes.

Yep. Too full of pride to apologize.

I believe the majority who struggle to say sorry are catholics, they only say sorry to some faceless fuck behind a flyscreen window & then told to say 20 hail mary's & all is forgiven...forget the victim

Are you catholic?

Was raised as 1 by a strict catholic. Its nothing more than proxy for the mafia, they operate the same (pyramid system), women cannot hold a position of power (they are the congregation or run the st Vincents store) to put on the "we're good people" show & the best bit is how they force you to hand over your last $5 so that g-o-d doesn't burn your shop down...funny how the church hands out envelopes (for its constant followers) with a specific number on them...not keeping track of 'donations' or anything.
So, are you catholic?...wait, I bet you went to a catholic school, never been to church since but call yourself a catholic

Then there is the opposite, the people who constantly apologize for nothing , they are kind of manic but that is another thread. I used to work with one.

Re: 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."

Thank You for sharing this! I have truly thought my whole life it was just me, that everyone had a problem with admitting they made any error or mistake and certainly I have NEVER had an apology no matter any evil shit that has been done unjustly.

I have wondered is it this species or is it just me? I have no problem admitting when I am wrong and saying I am sorry and doing whatever I can to correct it.

Wow, this post was very enlightening for me to read. Now, I know it is NOT just me, it happens to other good people as well. Thanks and God Bless You and Yours.

Re: What's with people that never apologize?
You want something external to happen to satisfy some sort of perceived infraction upon your life, which is ultimately a delusion of grandeur and a minor case of meglomania when you look at the grand scheme of things.

If this person does (a) then I will feel (b) and thus accomplish (c).

Yet there is a variable here that can not be named and or changed despite how much you try. You have to ask yourself at that point..what am I doing? You are choosing to stay a victim, rather than empower yourself and move forward. Grudges do just that. They keep you stuck in a perpetual cycle of victimhood.

Goodluck I guess...

My husband never apologizes but demands that I do so at times. It is a symptom of narcissist and covert narcissist.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 72270771


meh, i'm leary of the narcissist claims...

Seems like everyone throws that out anytime a person doesn't do exactly what they want.

Re: What's with people that never apologize?
It is their insecurities, feeling inferior they need to act sort of superior, thus never saying "I'm sorry" or "I was wrong". Those admissions don't fit with feeling superior, they think it inferior to apologize.

I rarely apologize, because its lip service.

Words are cheap.

You should reflect on what you did wrong, and try not to do it again, instead of saying sorry, and doing the same thing, again and again.

Why can't you do both? Say "I'm sorry" or "I did wrong" and "in the future I will do or not do the following so it does not happen again".

Real difficult.
