Unapologetic apology

‘I apologise’. You always used to say ‘I apologise’ and I could never work out why your apologies made me feel so ashamed. I thought it was the phrase: ‘I apologise’-too formal perhaps? Too long a word? Too many words? ‘sorry’ would be better, anything would be better than the unnerving ‘I apologise’. And now I realise that it wasn’t ‘I apologise’ or any other version of asking for forgiveness, it was you – an unapologetic apology.
