 A GOOD APOLOGY

We're learning that making a good apology can help to restore harmony and to heal relationships when we've hurt someone. The four steps are:

1.  Address the person: "I owe you an apology" or "I need to talk to you."

2. Most importantly: State the entire truth about what you did to caue harm to the person.

3. "Will you forgive me?" or "Will you accept my apology?" If the answer is "no," then the parties can decide what to do next. Sometimes trust needs to be re-established over time.

4. "What else can I do to make it right?" or "Do you need anything else?" Many times apologies must be mutual, which can break the cycle of harm.
