According to the Huffington Post (and about a dozen other news outlets), Sandra Fluke is not so quick to except the apology from Rush Limbaugh for calling he a “slut” and “prostitute” among other insinuations. I have to agree that his apology seems a bit phony.
Usually I can except an apology and move on. I don’t like to dwell on negativity or live in the past. However an apology that comes from pressure instead of remorse is pointless. When you are quick to take back something you so vehemently stood for, than it can easily be called into question that you are lying. If you really want an apology to carry weight it works best if you take action to back it up.
It’s okay to tell that person that you don’t accept their apology. If you feel wronged and you cannot let go, that is your choice. If people tell you that you should continue to be angry and you want to move on, it is okay. You and only you can decide what to fight for and when to move on.
When are you able to let go? When do you feel that it is better to continue to argue?
