We all make mistakes at some point. From letting friends down, offending someone, upsetting your family and so many more. It’s impossible not to make an error from time to time. Be that an off hand comment, being late for an event, general rudeness or something else entirely. It’s the way in which we learn from and deal with those mistakes that’s important though. And a vital way to make amends and show you care about the upset you cause is by apologising. Saying “I’m sorry” isn’t easy and requires humility, not something that comes easy to many. But learning how to say sorry and the way in which to apologise is a key skill everyone should have.
You can apologise in a few different ways. Both in person and via an apology note are probably the best. They are suitable at different times for different things but done the right way should demonstrate your guilt and sadness at upsetting whoever it is.
If you’re one of those who struggles not only with the apology itself but what to say or write then you’re not alone.
