Apologising if you've done wrong is certainly not a weakness; in fact, it's quite the opposite considering how difficult it is for many to give a sincere apology.

But apologising too often and bending over backwards for people is the sign of a doormat.

It shows you're not perfect, that's true. But not saying it is wrong for what I see. If people screw up, they better apologise if they mean it.

If someone in my live is incapable of saying sorry when they do something wrong, I won't like them very much.

That pretty much sums it up, bo.

Perhaps, but not apologizing for your misdeeds is worse in my book.

@PhilboydStudge Perhaps, but not apologizing for your misdeeds is worse in my book.

the way i understand that saying is to never apologize for standing up for what is right, no matter what the world thinks, to do so would indeed mean you are weak

obviously not saying sorry when you did something wrong is not proper.

@deusvult the way i understand that saying is to never apologize for standing up for what is right, no matter what the world...

I agree with that. You should not apologize for standing up for what you believe is right. I might still want to apologize if, given hindsight, I realize I made the wrong call.

There is a difference between just being human, therefore no need to apologise, and being wrong. Saying you’re sorry for being honest is a weak and cowardly move. Acting all tough and not owning up to your wrongs is even more cowardly. Your self-proclaimed co-jo-nes won’t save you.

That was a good movie, and in that setting it was a true statement. I always liked this one though: Image in content

it depends, sorry is good to say to family and friends. Bad cowboys no.

never apologize to the left for standing up for whats right now matter how much hell they put you through.

I’ve said that to people. That being said, I’ve made myself a hypocrite. 🤔

Apologizing and saying you're sorry is a sign of strength in my opinion. It takes a big man/woman to admit when they are wrong and try to make amends.

@Rooster Depends on how it is meant.

I agree, but if a person is wrong, then a sincere apology will do wonders for a friendship or relationship. Not sure about John Wayne. lol
