How To Write A Letter Of Apology

hi I'm Chris from clarity I've been a

professional writer for ten years now

and today I'm going to give you some

tips on writing a few different things

so if you're going to write in a letter

of apology the first most important

thing to do is to apologize to actually

be sincere and simple and say I'm sorry

those are the most the three most

important words it's input very

important not to try to wriggle out of

it not to be legalistic and try to cover

yourself but to come out and say that

you're sorry so don't say for example I

can apologize if I may have hurt your

feelings

say I'm sorry that I hurt your feelings

there are three parts to an apology

letter

the first part is to say what you did

the second part is to say why you did it

and the third part is to say how you'll

put it right so the first part is to say

what you're sorry for and it's important

to to focus on your actions to say I'm

sorry that I didn't turn up for the

meeting for example if possible echo

their words when they made a complaint

to you or when they spoke to you so say

I'm sorry I was rude and when you're

explaining what you're sorry for don't

presume anything about the way they feel

if they haven't told you that they they

were upset or angry or frustrated then

don't use those words it's safest to say

what you did rather than how they feel

so the second thing is to say why you

did whatever it was often people aren't

so much upset about your actions

it's about what those actions show them

about your

towards them so it's very important to

explain your motivation often you had

good intentions and you just simply need

to say what those were if it was a

mistake or if it was carelessness or

thoughtlessness again just say that be

simple and be honest tell them how you

feel about your action now I wish I

hadn't done it I'm really sorry I did it

and reassure them about how you feel

about them I respect you and I didn't

want to upset the third thing is to say

what you're going to do about it in a

lot of cases the main sometimes the only

thing that you will do is make sure you

never do it again that's fine just say

so sometimes you'll need to repair the

damage you'll need to make good what you

did and there just say what you'll do to

make things the way they were more

occasionally you'll want to make some

gesture to try to make it up to them in

that case is quite important how you say

that how you phrase that and the best

way of doing it is to say something like

to show you how sorry I am

I've attached a Gift Life Center gift

in signing off just tell them that you

know the apology won't magically make

everything better and that it will take

time for them to forgive you but that

your main intention was just to say how

sorry you are and to explain why you did

what Evy and that's how to write an

apology letter
