How to say sorry in a few simple steps
We all make mistakes, but sometimes those mistakes require a little more work to make up for them. Apologizing can be difficult and uncomfortable, but fortunately it is a skill that can be learned! Timely apologies are the best apologies, so quickly read on to learn how to give a great apology:
1.) Recount the situation—Show that you empathize and understand why the other person is upset, and acknowledge the pain you have caused them.
2.) Assume Responsibility—This is the part where you actually say "I am sorry." Explain what you did wrong, why you won't do it again, and promise that it won't happen again. This will help make your apology more authentic and meaningful.
3.) Ask for forgiveness—Once you have apologized, all you can do is take a step back and ask for forgiveness from whoever you hurt.
If your offense isn't too serious, a sweet, thoughtful gift can be sugar on top that ties everything together. A floral arrangement is the perfect gift for making your peace offering pop! Whether it's their favorite flowers or something classic like a bouquet of roses, flowers can help lighten the mood and bring a smile to anyone's face.
And for something that's more literally the sugar on top, our fruit arrangements are great gifts to help sweeten the mood when things have gone sour.
No matter what, make sure your apology comes from the heart, and it will be a great apology guaranteed.
