Apologies

Listening to a show on apologies on This American Life today I wonder, if the only acknowledgement of an apology is a brief reference to how hard it must have been do, is it safe to assume you aren't forgiven? Or worse, you aren't believed?

How do you prove that it's more than just words that filled the pages? If after several months I begin to hope for something in return, does it mean my apology is actually thin?
