Sorry, not sorry may be a phrase I don't really care to hear, but it's definitely a phrase you should live by.
Apologizing is something we do on what seems like a daily basis. Actually meaning we are sorry is not often a fact. We as humans have this instinct to apologize whether we mean it or not.
How many times do you say you're sorry just to avoid the situation? Maybe you just want to end a fight? You know someone wants to hear it, so you say it anyway?
As instinctive as it is, we should NEVER, ever apologize for something we do not feel remorse for.
I can't tell you how many times I've heard "I'm sorry" and could actually tell the person did not mean it. Not meaning it is so much worse than not hearing an apology in my book.
Why should you apologize? If you've done or said something and think, "Damn I really shouldn't have done that," then apologize and move on.
If you're in a situation where you're in a fight but feel you did nothing wrong, do NOT say you're sorry and not mean it.
I'm not afraid to call people out for an emotionless apology. I'd rather confront what's going on and if need be, agree to disagree.
Don't ever feel you need to be the peace maker, unless you honestly want to be, and say sorry just for fun. If you want to stand your ground, don't apologize and proceed with the conversation.
Sorry, I'm not sorry for my outlook (:
