How do you apologize for hurting someone you love?
The first step is to listen closely to the other person. Let them express their feelings so that you can see things from their perspective. Be detailed in your apology, and do not turn it into a debate. Once you issue your apology, be patient, it may take some time for the other person to accept.
What can I say instead of sorry?
The phrase 'I take full responsibility' essentially shows one acknowledges their mistake and owns up to it. While it may not be a perfect substitute for saying you are sorry, it shows an admission of guilt.
How do you prove your love to someone you hurt?
Before embarking on the trust-building process, ask yourself why you did what you did. Then, apologise sincerely and give the other person time to heal.
Some well-thought romantic sorry messages can go a long way in mending rifts in a relationship. The absence of an apology after a mistake might be construed to mean the offender does not value the person they hurt.
