"Apology" means "a speech in one's defence". At the root, it includes "to go away".
Apologies extracted are empty. They lack learning. They are devoid of mourning.
Mourning is a process. To learn over time how you acted in a way that did not serve you, the other, and the context.
Meaningful apologies are growth.
Meaningful apologies offer connection and getting ever closer to acting with congruence.
