So… don’t be surprised when the person doesn’t respond to your sorry text. And DO NOT text sorry for texting sorry !!
It is very respectful to go to someone’s door and say to them: “I am sorry.”
A phone call can be acceptable until you are able to get the the person. Gifts are not necessary – it is your personal actions that count – the delivery of your sorry; verbal and non-verbal communication.
Some people don’t think sorry means a lot, but it is a way for people to start the process of sorry. As stated in the dictionary – a feeling of regret. Of course, after the sorry, the person must show their sorry in further actions and make a change.
Failed apologies can strain relationships very deeply. There are different motives for saying sorry, but what makes an apology work is the exchange of power between the offender and offended.
