I don't believe I ever heard this word growing up and for sure not from father. He lived to mid 90's and just thinking I really had no support and learning from him. He drank all his life but even if he didn't people just don't Apologize and are sincere. My daughter and I talk about this a lot and we talk about her 17 yrs of a tough marriage and never a Sorry word from the ex who is now passed. As I see it, the sign of a person who can apologize and say they are sorry and truly mean it, is a sign of a secure strong person. Not weakness. Food for thoughts.
