Saying "I am sorry" solidifies what you did wrong. Don't use those words. Be sincere and tell them what you should have done instead of what you did. They will likely agree. Then use actions to show and not tell them you are sorry.

It's really important when you try to apologize that you mean it. Look the other person strait in the eye and then say it! Tell calm words that come directly from your heart. That's the way to make thongs up and to get closer again.

A sincere apology will be recognized by the wronged person, but it doesn't always mean they will accept your apology. After your apology, it can take time for the other person to see you are following up by changing your behavior.

A lot of people don't apologize, and that is probably why I have my business. I do think that it is important to apologize when you do mean it. I've made an ass of myself many times, and probably will have a few more times to have to apologize.
