    First it should come from our heart and with a honest mind of reconciliation. Repentance also very important here. And then with a heart of humility we need to apologize.

    Whether it is from the heart or a complete charade, it needs to be improve the situation and not make it worse.  How many husbands and wives have apologized to their spouses for extra marital affairs when their mates did not know, ultimately destroying the relationship.

    If I need to apologise I don't belabour it, I just ask them 'hope that didn't offend you, sorry if it did' and talk it out with them.

    It is important to recognize our mistakes, such as when we have conducted ourselves in an inappropriate manner. recognizing our mistakes and short coming springs out from  good character, humility. to think that we are always right and having a mentality that we can do what ever we want and hurting people along the way is a dangerous thing.

    It is very difficult for me to apologize,but when I manage to spill it out I try to make it from my heart and sound sincere with plenty of eye contact,and a sorrowful face.

    Simply say 'IM SORRY '' but mean it or dont bother !

    I never apologise for something that wasnt my fault or if im not wholly sincere about it....but on the other hand I dont make a habit of hurting people or doing things to offend so I dont have to apologise very often !!

    Be direct and sincere and don't put it off.  I try to never be in that position where it would happen.

    It is most often over something I wasn't aware I was doing wrong.

    Like so many other things it really depends on the situation. If you truly feel bad for something you said or did then you should be able to apologize without any trouble, but if there is part of you that doesn't understand why the other party is upset then maybe there is a communication gap between the two of you.

    It's a bad sign if a person can't apologize when they know that they are wrong.  I do think that just because someone is offended. . . .that doesn't necessarily mean that apologies are in order.  One has to actually feel that they ought to apologize for an apology to be "worth" anything to either party.

    I've never apologized to a single person in all my life. I'm sorry, but that's just the way I am. smile

    When I feel regretful for something I said, or did, I say so.

    Any apology from me is sincere.

    The   very worst "whipping" I ever recieved as a child was for my refusal to offer my brother an apology.  I was not 'sorry', nor would I 'take back' my words.    I preferred to take the harsh punishment.

    My brothers learned of my character and so did my Granddad, though it took many years to reveal it.

    When I tell you, " I am sorry" can bank on it.

    Some words are passe', my apologies are not.

    Count my  stripes..........

    When it comes to my husband and my own children, I am often eager to say........perharps I do not understand.........maybe I don't grasp.....

    to be "sorry", you better be sure, that I owe you.

    I'm a very honest person, so If I'm not sorry I dont say I am, even if I know I'm in the wrong. After all a false apology is just another way to lie. But I'm honest with it, so I can admit when I'm in the wrong but save the apology til' later. (usually after an argument it takes me a little while to calm down enough to apologise.)
