There is a need to apologize when we accidentally do something. However, there are no such things as accidents when it comes to our life decisions.
So, I don't believe that there should be apologies. We do things for a reason. And if we apologize because we chose to do them, then that is a sign that we do not know ourselves.
Once we choose, there will be consequences. Some good. some bad. But deep inside, we wish there would be more good. But if ever that is not the case, our only option is to deal with it and continue on with life.
As much as the apology is accepted, things have already changed.
