Best Apology Ideas (...and worst)

Be an Apology Star! Many of the thousands of visitors we get each month are looking for great apology ideas to deal with their own personal crisis. Learning how others successfully resolved their mistakes is an effective way to pick up important apology ideas to begin mending fences in your own personal or business life.

With this in mind, the PA team decided it would be a great idea to include a section on our site inviting our visitors to submit great Apology Ideas, or bad ones to help push us in a different direction.

One of the best ideas we received in the past was to add a little something extra to ones apology by naming a star after the person you've hurt.

Of course, a gesture such as naming a star may not be appropriate for all mistakes, but, for many situations, we believe it will go a long way towards satisfying key elements of a perfect apology—the gesture is very thoughtful and obviously takes some time and effort, which means the relationship is important to you and worthy of mending.

So, this is the place to share your successes and failures, tell us your story or share your ideas, and help our visitors improve their apologies.

If you've received a great apology tell us about it …
Was it written or verbal? Did it come with a gift? A song? A poem? Was it romantic? What made it special?

If you received an apology that really stunk.... let us know about that too! We can all learn from others' mistakes... and we all love to comment on those!

If you've given a great apology, inspire us and let us know how clever you are!

And if the apology you gave flopped... get other people's opinions on why and maybe some of our readers can help you make things right again.


Check out the apology ideas that our visitors have shared at the bottom of this page!
