What do you suggest if the other party refuses to accept the apology and keeps running you down over and over again? Just curious.

What seems perfectli innocent to one person may raise the hackles of another. The only thing I can suggest is clear, honest communication. If an apology is offered, graciously accept it.
May I suggest ?, if that's the case ,then you at least tried.its then time to move on .
I do not foresee a problem when friendships go south....it happens but we must be strong and accept what has happened and learn from our frailities. I make friendships....I lose friendships but each time I do, I learn, I say where did I go wrong,what can I do to improve for the next time. But when I am making friends, I give it my all.....sorry when it doesn't work out!
Don't sweat the small stuff as I have to keep reminding myself daily of this
Yes I have to take myself less seriously.....be serious when I have to be.
Thank you ladies and gents for reading.
