2. Acknowledge that You Have Hurt her Feelings [“I was wrong and I am sorry that I have hurt your feelings.”]
3. Express Your Remorse [“I was wrong and I am sorry that I hurt your feelings and I feel terrible that I have done something that has hurt you.”]
4. State Your Intention Not to Repeat [“I know that I am sometimes insensitive to what you need but I am going to try my hardest not to do it again.”]
5. Offer to Make Amends [“What can I do to make it up to you?”]
6. Seek Forgiveness [“Will you forgive me?” or “Can you forgive me?”]
