"It's too late to apologize"

Hey guys! 

Today, I was just listening to the song "Apologize" by OneRepublic when something came to my mind - it's basically like the song says. I started to wonder where's the point of no return when it comes to apologies. I started to wonder when do we say 'enough' and decide that we no longer accept any apologies. 

There's a moment when someone who has really hurt you, who has let you down so badly, apologizes. They say they're sorry, maybe they even say that it's the last time, that they didn't mean it. I'm in favor of apologies, don't give me to wrong - I'm the first one to apologize when I make a mistake or hurt someone. And forgiving it's okay, because we're all human and make mistakes. 

Nevertheless, sometimes, an apology isn't enough. When you get hurt many times by the same person you start to wonder if you actually want to forgive them. You start to wonder if their words are actually true, or if they're only lies, just like it has happened many times before. I've been there. 

There you see the person, a person you really care about and maybe you love that person, just like in the song. They're saying they're sorry, that they need you - but you've seen that before. They've apologized before and then stabbed you in the back, and this time you tell yourself that you've had enough, that it's too late. Even though that person means the world to you, even though you love that person more than anything in the world, even though you need them... you just can't forgive them for what they did or said. You're afraid of being hurt the same way again, you might even be afraid of the person who's apologizing. 

There are moments in which you just can't forgive someone - it's already too late to apologize.
