    not afraid......... just hate the fact that theyre in the wrong or (truthfully, in my case) hurts their ego and pride

    That is true. Isn't it better to just apologise and move on rather than having it hang over you?

    What i mean is that some people see it as sign of weakness so refuse to apologise even when they are blatantly in the wrong. So the other person then resents them for it and causes bad blood which prevents both parties from moving on.

    I don't see apologising as a sign of weakness. In fact the opposite. It takes a lot of courage and it clears the air.

    It's not easy to admit it but it does require a lot of guts and determination.

    Yes that is one possibility. Most of the time people know when they have done wrong and as Sana malik mentions it is the ego that gets in the way of them apologizing.

    An apology can mean different things for different people and it depends on the situation.

    If I've been arguing or had a disagreement, I find it more difficult to apologise, especially if I think I'm right.

    Although sometimes I apologise for an easier life.

    They'd rather not admit they're in the wrong. I've had cases before where instead of an apology, I've ended up being blamed for their behaviour. I'm sorry; but you're a grown man FFS. I can't force you to act the way you did. That was your choice. You need to take some responsibility for your behvaiour.
