Excellent distinction.
Question: If the task "wasn't a priority," is it authentic to say "Sorry" unless the other person was actually harmed? This seems to me like a reflexive and often inauthentic way to begin speaking.



Great point. I think you are right that apologies are often used automatically and therefore inauthentically.

And, if you failed to fulfill on a commitment to someone, an (authentic) apology is in order to take care of the relationship.

Thanks for your comments. Take care,
