and then again, not so much.
think about this in the sense of a lot of time has gone by. i don't mean you get into an argument with someone and you apologize right away. i mean, time has passed (years even)- and then an apology comes.
do you think that it is said because it is truly meant? because they actually see that what they did or said (or whatever) was wrong and they want to genuinely let you know? maybe their perspective has changed and they can honestly see what a jackass they were....
or do you think it's said so they can make themselves feel better? maybe they carry around so much guilt for their actions, that the only way to feel better is to apologize. but it's not that they have really even changed their way of thinking- they just want to stop feeling bad about themselves.
i know this is random, but i'm thinking ahead here. and i'm wondering how long it will take before a certain someone apologizes to me for being such a bitch. but that got me thinking about just where the "sorry" will truly be coming from. and who it would truly be for. would it really be for me, or would it be for her? and then when are apologies not selfish? when are they truly selfless?
am i making any sense at all? probably not.
