  • No, it is not.

    The fact that we have create da society where apologizing means that someone is admitting guilt is bad. An apology can be offered after something that was an accident, not neccessarily something that was the apologizes fault. People should not be afraid of apologizing, because it is good for both parties involved.

  • It does not necessarily mean that a person is guilty.

    If two people are involved in an accident, one might tell the other that they are 'sorry' that they were hurt or that their property was destroyed. This does not mean that they are responsible for their pain but rather that they are expressing sympathy for the other person's hardship.

  • No, Apologies Don't Admit Guilt.

    No, I do not believe that apologizing is an admission of guilt. There are many situations where a person may apologize when they have not done anything wrong. Someone may apologize if they just feel bad about the situation another person is . Another reason someone might apologize is because they feel it is the right thing to say at the time. I don't feel that an apology should be used against anyone in a court of law.

  • No, apologizing is not an admission of guilt.

    No, apologizing is not an admission of guilt. It is simply a way of telling someone how you feel. People say they are sorry at funerals. Does that mean they killed the person. No. Saying sorry is a way of comforting someone who is having a difficult time coping at the moment.
