Apology is a regretful acknowledgment of an offense or mistake. To really mean something, it needs to be expressed with sincerity. When delivered as a learning experience, it is powerful.
All that, simply by saying, “I'm sorry.”
Be humble. Set your ego aside. It's so much more authentic than sticking to your guns, even when you know you are wrong, or have been proven wrong. Respect is expressed by an apology. Love is demonstrated by making amends. Saying “I'm sorry” won't take it back, but it should make it better.
