Apologies extracted are empty

"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.
