What do you do when someone apologizes to you?
Do you accept it?
Or do you question it?
Maybe I'm naive but I was brought up to always accept an apology, I still do.
I taught the sacrament of reconciliation to year 2 & 3 classes in Catholic schools for years.
I taught that if someone says sorry, you forgive them and say, "Let's be friends."
Yes, I know, that's incredibly simplistic.
I wasn't expecting, or even wanting, to be best friends again.
I simply do not like ignoring someone almost every day that I was previously very close to for seven years.
That to me is ridiculous.
It is awkward, it is uncomfortable.
But if children can learn to forgive, surely adults can, too.
If you can't, if I apologize to you and you question my intentions, you are not worth it.
