Hi, my name is Brooke Miller, psychotherapist and founder of Soapbox Therapy. And today I'm going to give you some tips of how to make an apology. First say what you did wrong. Say it out loud so you and the person you are apologizing to are both on the same page. If you are not sure what you did wrong and why the other person is mad at you, which can definitely happen. Ask. You want to make sure that you are apologizing for the right thing. Second take full responsibility for what you did. Admit your wrong doing but make sure never to use the word but followed by an excuse for what you did. It dilutes the entire apology and makes it all less meaningful. Lastly during an apology never point the finger back at the other person and say what they may have done wrong in the situation. That might be part of a later conversation but if you are trying to really make a good apology don't include if, ands, or buts until later. Always keep in mind there is no shame in saying you're sorry. My name is Brooke Miller from Soapbox Therapy. And those are some tips to get you started on an authentic apology.
