People who understand that being left alone is better than someone apologizing, or “trying to make it right”. The place where you realize your safety and your sense of self > the relationship, because the person caused so much harm it’s just not worth the risk.
And that’s not the thing of never building relationships again, it’s just that the chance was had, was failed, and you don’t got time or energy to pour into something on the hopes it won’t hurt you, but be “just ok”.
I don’t need or want apologies, most of the time. When it’s hit that point, I just don’t ever want to interact with those folks again. In so many ways, the demanding need that apologies be accepted, that relationships be rebuilt, is often the same attitude that violated the boundaries in the first place.
I got better things to do than to try to invest in a loss.
