I want to share a great allegory I just learned.
Two mice found a large supply of cheese. One mouse ate his fill but continued to look for more cheese before the supply ran out. The other mouse was content to stay and eat at leisure.
One day, the first mouse was out scouting for cheese while the second mouse finished the supply. The second mouse left with no real direction in mind. When the first mouse returned, the cheese was inexplicably gone. He wasted time scouting for the supply always wondering who had moved the cheese.
The second mouse found no other store of cheese but the first mouse remembered his other discoveries and prospered.

Your second apology causes disappointment. (never let it go past this)
Every apology after that creates resentment. (too late. too far)
