Apology Letters: Saying Sorry To Friends & Family
Being at odds with friends and family can make you feel isolated. They're our closest relationships and often, the people we spend most of our time with.
Wanting forgiveness and to make things right again is only natural. When friends and family are involved, a meaningful and sincere apology is the only way to go.
Hurting someone you care so much about it, is an added burden to the infraction that you've already committed. A simple "I'm sorry" is rarely enough.
You need to let your friends and family know what you're sorry about and that you understand how it made them feel in order to demonstrate how important the relationship is to you.
You not only need to show them that you're aware of what you did but also express regret for it, accept responsibility, and find a way to make it up to them. Finally, you need to ask for forgiveness. Many people find it easier to write it all out in an apology letter rather than having to think on their feet while apologizing—so whatever you feel will work best for you and your situation is likely the way to go.
