How to Apologize?

Asking for Forgiveness

Ram has just arrived at his staff meeting, and he can tell that his boss, Bhoomika, is stressed. He ignores the tension in the room, and launches into his carefully researched presentation. After a few minutes, however, Bhoomika picks up on a tiny error and begins to scold Ram. She accuses him, and the rest of the team, of not doing a fair work. Her hurtful words ashamed Ram, and he leaves the meeting early because he is so upset. As the days pass, Ram expects Bhoomika to apologize for her behavior. However, the apology never comes, and their relationship becomes strained, resentful, and unproductive. A few months later, Ram takes a position in another department. In this situation, Bhoomika could have restored her relationship with Ram with a sincere apology after the meeting. But, instead, she lost a talented team member. 

In this article, we'll see why apologies are so important, and we'll look at how to apologize with sincerity and grace when you have made a mistake. 

What is an Apology?

An apology is a statement that has two key elements: 

1. It shows your remorse over your actions. 
2. It acknowledges the hurt that your actions have caused to someone else. 

We all need to learn how to apologize – after all, no one is perfect. We all make mistakes, and we all have the capability to hurt people through our behaviors and actions, whether these are intentional or not. 

It isn't always easy to apologize, but it's the most effective way to restore trust and balance in a relationship, when you've done something wrong. 

Why Apologize?

There are many reasons why you should make a sincere apology when you've hurt someone unnecessarily, or have made a mistake. 
First, an apology opens a dialogue between yourself and the other person. Your willingness to admit your mistake can give the other person the opportunity he needs to communicate with you, and start dealing with his feelings. 

When you apologize, you will recognize that you are engaged in improper behavior. This helps you rebuild trust and recreate your relationship with the other person. It also gives you a chance to discuss what is and isn't acceptable. 

What's more, when you admit that the situation was your fault, you restore dignity to the person you hurt. This can begin the healing process, and it can ensure that she doesn't unfairly blame herself for what happened. 

Last, a sincere apology shows that you're taking responsibility for your actions. This can strengthen your self-confidence, self-respect, and reputation. You're also likely to feel a sense of relief when you come clean about your actions, and it's one of the best ways to restore your integrity in the eyes of others. 

Consequences of Not Apologizing

What are the consequences if you don't apologize when you've made a mistake?
First, you will damage your relationships with colleagues, clients, friends, or family. It can harm your reputation, limit your career opportunities, and lower your effectiveness – and, others may not want to work with you. 

It also negatively affects your team when you don't apologize. No one wants to work for a boss who can't own up to his mistakes, and who doesn't apologize for them. The tension, and pain that comes with this can create a bad work environment. 

Why Apologies are Difficult?
With all these negative consequences, why do some people still refuse to apologize?
First, apologies take courage. When you admit that you were wrong, it puts you in a helpless position, which can open you up to attack or blame. Some people struggle to show this courage. 

Alternatively, you may be so full of shame and discomfort over your actions that you can't bring yourself to face the other person.
Or, you may be following the advice "never apologize, never explain". It's up to you if you want to be this arrogant, but, if you do, don't expect to be seen as a wise or an inspiring leader. 

How to Apologize Appropriately?

Apologizing or saying sorry is not easy always. There are several ways which you can use to apologize to someone very easily. Find out the following tips and make your apology easier: 

1. The best way to apologize is to be “quick and intense.” The longer you wait to apologize, the longer your fight will remain. 

2. Don’t say you are sorry if you don’t mean it. Apology should be from the heart, and make the person feel that you are truly apologizing to him. 

3. Do not struggle to speak ‘sorry’ someone, when you really mean to. Just say ‘sorry’ simply. 

4. Get ready to pay for your mistakes. 

5. Take full responsibility for hurting the person’s feelings. 

6. Commit that you will never repeat the mistake again.

Match the Apology and Situation.
