One thing that prevents a person from attaining closure from past relationships and moving on is not being able to apologize for wrongdoings. Many people still find it terribly difficult to enjoy their present relationships knowing that they have yet to apologize to someone for causing harm or injustice unto them in their past relationships. When you have wronged someone you have relationships with, and you acknowledge this, it is only normal for you to seek closure by apologizing. Otherwise, you will feel a sense of uneasiness in your relationships and in that a chapter of your life cannot be closed just yet without concluding it properly. Without the closure of your past relationships, it is very hard to enter into a new chapter –the present relationships. However, there are times wherein much time has passed before a person realizes his or her wrongdoing. This makes it harder and possibly more awkward for one to approach someone whom they have wronged with an apology. However, despite the embarrassment of having to bring up a past fault after so much time, it will be worth the apology afterwards when inner peace is achieved. Other people have a hard time apologizing because of their pride. They do not want to admit that they are wrong in their relationships, least of all to other people. However, if they know in their hearts that they are at fault in their relationships, they must humble themselves by apologizing if they ever wish to move on. It may be a blow to their ego at first, but they will later discover that being able to finally apologize will make them feel like an even better person in their relationships. In some cases, people do not want to apologize because even though they know that they are at fault, they still resent the other person or persons whom they have wronged. They may not want to give someone whom they dislike the satisfaction of hearing an apology. Sometimes, they might feel as though they need to hear an apology first, before the themselves apologize. The problem with resentful people in relationships who refuse to apologize is that they are neglecting to do their part in their relationships. They still have unfinished business and no matter how hard they try to ignore it, it will continue to haunt them until they are able to apologize for their end of the blame. If you owe someone an apology, do not hesitate to give them their due. Otherwise, you will not be able to live fully in the present because your guilt and feelings of having unfinished business will prevent you from doing so.
