How To Apologize

It's hard to sincerely apologize, but here's a little help from Mumford and Sons:

It was not your fault, but mine
And it was your heart on the line
I really (messed) it up this time
Didn't I, my dear?

You can add- 'I'm sorry, I'd like to make it up to you.'

An apology is a great foundation for reconciliation.

When you know you've made a mistake and need to apologize, it can seem agonizing to do it, but once it's done, you'll feel better. Even if the other person won't accept your apology, at least you did all you could. If they do accept your apology, you can begin to fix things and have a stronger relationship.

Remember- don't burn bridges, build bridges and use them!
