NOT SORRY: The Non-Apology Apology

not sorry

Perhaps the reader has been the recipient of a fairly modern ruse: the non-apology apology?

In the non-apology apology, the person who is at fault SOUNDS like he is making an apology and expressing remorse for his behavior.

BUT, he isn’t.

In the non-apology apology, the person at fault is NOT SORRY for his behavior–and will likely repeat it, given the time and the circumstance.

In the non-apology apology, the person at fault ‘apologizes’ for the actions of the one who is the recipient of the ‘apology’–NOT his own actions.

It goes something like this.

“I’m sorry you are upset.”

“I’m really sorry you cried.”

“I feel bad about the whole thing. I’m sorry you got angry.”

In the non-apology apology, the person who is ‘apologizing’ expresses NO remorse for his own actions.


During a disagreement in a restaurant parking lot several years ago, a man and his wife were arguing with another man they claimed opened his door and put a dent in the door of their car.

The man and his wife called the police. When the policeman arrived, he seemed to be more interested in putting the matter to rest and played the peacekeeper.

He told the man and his wife, “It’s hard to really know what really happened. IF he apologizes to you, will you let it go?”

The couple looked at each other and nodded.

The policeman then went to the other man and told him, “They are willing to drop the whole thing IF you apologize. Will you apologize?”

The man chuckled and said, “Sure!

So the policeman led the man over to the couple and the man said, “I’m REALLY sorry…sorry about the disagreement and sorry you got upset.”

This seemed to satisfy the man and his wife BUT the other man had not expressed ANY remorse for his actions: he only expressed regret that he had had a disagreement with the man and his wife and was only sorry THEY got upset.

The non-apology apology: just another deception of modern life.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation


“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
