I think everyone over uses it at one point or another.

I used to.
but i don't anymore.

If i feel like an apology is necessary but I'm not actually sorry, I will say "I apologize"

but if I am truly sorry I say "I'm sorry"

It is human nature to be prideful rather than humble. Saying sorry in a sincere manner is one of the most humble things a person can do. Not only do you admit that you are wrong, but you submit yourself to the mercy of the person you are apologizing to.

How many times have you said or thought you were sorry?  Of course, it’s often in the context of believing that you somehow failed or disappointed yourself or another.  It’s the basic belief that what happened could and should have happened differently with a more desirable outcome.  We believe that we failed in some way that we could have avoided; that things could have been better if only we had been more attentive and responsible, if we had been better or different than we were.  Our world could be a little better than it is now, but it’s not, because of our personal deficiency and failings.  Such is the basic stuff of guilt.  There is often no easy way to dispute this kind of thinking.  It also seems a bit preposterous and useless to continue in this manner.  If a different and better outcome was really available, then it likely would have happened - but it didn’t.  Even if we can accept that understanding of reality, still the “what if” inevitably arises, compelling us to imagine a more preferential outcome.  This grasping and regretting process is just our human brain and ego naturally trying to run the show, or at least shifting things a bit in our favor.  We may even realize that events happen because they have been configured by all of preceding history to happen in that moment, in just that particular way.  Still, it doesn’t matter, for we will continue to regret various outcomes, believing that we could and should have done things better.

It depends on the situation at hand, in most cases the words "I'm sorry" are a defense trigger imprinted on our minds by societies teachings to make our lives run a lot smoother. Since most small accidents such as a small collision on a busy sidewalk or a misdialed phone call can be excused without any repercussions. To most the words "I'm sorry" can stop additional grief or conflict before it even starts, which is why the phrase is so commonly used.

A lot of the time people will say their sorry even if it wasn't their fault or have no clue what just happened but apologize for it anyways. In the end it all boils down to getting the uncomfortable or in some cases dangerous ordeal over and done with so that we can move on to more important things in life. Even people who have nothing to do would rather not spend their time arguing or fighting over something that could be excused by a simple sorry.

There is a slight difference between being Sorry and saying you are Sorry.

If one's sorry then the response could be in words or deeds and it from deep senses and feelings of the one.

When one say's sorry it means that the one try to achieve by giving remorse!

Yes it is a give / take highway of human psychology.

You say sorry to gain, attraction, compassion, adoption, defection and other ****ing tions~!

They use it a lot in movies and TV shows but I don't use it unless I'm in a deep trouble.
