How To Give A Good Apology!

Mistakes. Loss of judgment. Insensitivity. Diarrhea mouth.

We’ve all been there. We’ve all screwed up and consequently hurt someone we care about.

Of course, an authentic apology can go a long way towards making things right. But unless we get this simple act of saying, “I’m sorry” just right, we’re likely to add insult to injury.

In this video, you’ll learn the simple two-letter word that can destroy your chances to repair your relationship when things go wrong and how to avoid it.

Click play to find out what that word is.

Got any more I’m sorry wisdom to share? Lay it out here in the comments.

With love,

    I wrote about this very subject of saying sorry a while ago! So true! There is a good way and a not so effective way to saying I’m sorry. 🙂

    So true.  I have an employer who only says “I’m sorry if…”  Don’t apologize for my feelings, for my truth.
