Test of an apology

February 16, 2016

I’ve found this to work ALWAYS: the genuineness of an apology is proportional to the willingness to be exposed. A raw willingness to bare it.

An apology makes no demands, tries little to hide, is rarely coerced, is eager to begin afresh. For that alone is an apology and nothing else.

Slipping in seven robes for one stolen is no apology. For there is a sense of demand, a payment for the excuse exacted. “I stole,” is apology enough.
