Have you ever felt that you've tried to apologize forever? Like there's this issue that can't be resolved and you want to apologize (and do) but it seems that although you hear that "it's ok" or "no problem" that it just doesn't seem to make the problem dissipate? I think everyone has that happen at some point. Wanting things to be resolved is critical for some people. To have people just waive it off like it never happened... but act as though they are still hurt by that very situation can be so draining and emotional. Those who want forgiveness will hang on that person's every word just to hear resolution slip from their lips. But half-hearted "no, really, it's ok" and an immediate cold shoulder confuses and bewilders them. They have to do more. They have to apologize more. They have to prove how stupid and wrong they were over and over, reliving the past to prove they aren't the same as before. And the person who they are asking this forgiveness of, just thinks they want to live in the past and just can't get over things and the cold shoulder comes from just wanting to move on, but not seeming to give that person any more chances. Somewhere in all of this, nothing is resolved... and they are all back going through the vicious circle again. Go to Staind's
