In addition to saying I'm sorry more than you currently do you must learn to say I'm sorry in a more sincere way. The standard weak, I'm sorry, is just not acceptable if you truly want to be both effective and impressive.
To get started say you're sorry when you may not think it's necessary. Remember the apology I left above, normally a writer may not do this while in fact there was an opportunity to apologize regardless of the actual necessity for it.
The apology made many readers feel better and not as if I'm some know it all calling folks out in judgement. Do you get the point, see the picture clearly now?
The best way to say I'm sorry is to just do it. I'm providing you with a standard apology I use. I'm a naturally polite and kind person who, since birth, feels others feelings deeply, I'm sensitive to feelings and like to uplift people.
I've found this is to my advantage as well the people encountering me. I've gotten such positive feedback from my apologies and decided I should share it with others who want to be kinder more receptive people. You may use it as is or alter it a bit depending on the person and situation, as I did earlier in this article.
Please forgive me for anything I may have said or done that hurt you, I would never do anything to hurt you, if I did please forgive me I value you greatly and would never do anything to prove other wise.
The Edited Version
I seem to have said something other than what I intended, please forgive me if I've said something to make you feel bad, that was not my intent, I may have conveyed myself wrong and would never say anything to make you feel bad.
My Personal Apology - I use this one for my kids, you will be amazed at the change in the relationship with your child, tween or teen once they realize you value them and admit you yourself are not all knowing and perfect yet just simply trying to be the best Mom or Dad you can be.
Please forgive me if I've said or done anything to hurt you, I love you and value you so much I would never say or do anything to hurt or upset you, please forgive me if I did.
My daughters melt each and every time I say this, it ends with lots of hugs and I love you's Mom your the greatest!
You get the idea right? An apology is an opportunity to send a very powerful message about who you are. What imagine do you intend to project about who you are, a thoughtful considerate successful person or a self absorbed jerk?
