There are some things that are a little too late for us to make amends. When anything becomes too late, the events that should have taken place in that time move on, as do those we’re in touch with to make those things happen, as ‘my story’ shows.
With any potential new findings years on, a different thought process is needed, not only to deal with the new information, but the loss of what we’ve had to leave behind. It’s often too late for people like me who are catapulted into a life of uncertainty, with no potential outcome the other end.
Even with an apology, having to reassess new information on something of this magnitude comes far too late, and even if those responsible decided they wanted me to know about my disability earlier, they would still have left it too late to make amends.
The earlier the apology comes the easier it is to forgive and move on, but if and when an apology comes late, it’s usually an afterthought to clear ones conscience.
