Here’s the thing, when one “accepts” your apology, they are not absolving you of your indiscretions or actions towards them.
They are merely “accepting” your guilt, and your need to be let off the hook for your bad behaviour.
“Acceptance” is not forgiveness.
It’s just a way for everyone to move on without more carnage.
Keep that in mind the next time you feel the need to apologize for something.
