Was that the apology? Usually apologies are worded "I'm sorry" or "I apologize." I think you're kind of acknowledging an apology is due but you don't really want to.

It doesn't matter, anyway. I don't actually think one is necessary because I didn't take anything you wrote personally and I wasn't offended. I just found you frustrating, exasperating, and irritating to converse with because you kept twisting everything I said as if I had some dastardly purpose other than sharing information and another viewpoint.

How arrogant to think I don't understand. You know nothing about me. Now that I am divorcing, I will probably never see my stepson again. The fact that he did not come from my womb does not make it any less of a wrench from my heart. You think you're so exceptional and special for having these experiences? Geez, get off your high horse.
