Dear “Name of the receiver.”

Let me start a letter that recapping all the incidents step by step that hurt you and stayed the last thing in my heart. 

Please consider this note for the last day’s incident in the cafeteria. I was very sorry for my wrong behavior yesterday. My intention was not to hurt you neither I wanted to embarrass you in the presence of your staff members. 

I want to assure you that I won’t repeat this again in the future. It was completely spontaneous and was not related to my feelings. I am passing through a tough time and my emotion was down.   

I accept that I was wrong in responding to you in ill words, I won’t use this kind of wording in the future. I am requesting you to meet at my place to have a cup of tea. It makes me feel low that we’re not in good relations.

With best wishes,

Sub: Writing for an apology

It put me in a dilemma to write this letter.  How should I start to write for forgiveness? I know I should have accepted my mistake, but because of ego, I have lied to you. And provide you with a wrong picture of everything. I appreciate that you offered me a second chance to correct my things by trusting me.

Yet I didn’t tell you the truth and continued with my own crafted words. Now I am regretting what I could have protected.  May’s hearts are filled with your thoughts as I looked at you walk away in a sad mood.

I am not privileged to ask for one more chance but still asking for a chance to be a good person. I would like to remind you how we were in our early days. I am not like this as you are observing me. 

I am sorry for the pain I gave you. 

With love

I’m feeling sorry that I communicated in a very rough way and spoke so straight to you on the phone last week. As you know, I used to work late at night and have a problem receiving calls in the morning. I just got up when you rang my number and was not sure whether I was completely awake or not.

You are one of my friends, and I would not intentionally misbehave with you.  To avoid that incident and accept my apology and allow me to resolve this issue by taking you to dinner on Saturday. It’s been a long time since we did not have a good time together.

Looking for your response.

Dear Mateo,

I want to let you know how guilty I am feeling for the incident that happened on Annie’s birthday. I want to abolish this misunderstanding over a meeting. Please try to understand; my behavior was not intentional. 

I thought you and your family were done with dinner and would move to your place. I can’t think to ignore you. It all happened just because of a huge number of guests.  I am feeling bad about the breakdown of the communication. 

In the future, I will keep my mind about all the events and invited guests.  

By the way, I would like to send you and your family a few gifts. Please accept it and hope our friendship will survive this kind of misunderstanding.

Best regard

Dear ______________,

I’m asking for an apology for last night. By mistake, I offended you with my comments.  I did not act to hurt you. After your departure, I realized my mistake and felt guilty. But trust me, it was all jokes to have fun, nothing else

I should care for your sensitive behavior and really couldn’t understand how serious it can be in the future. I cannot take my words back though I can swear to you that I meant no harm.

In the future, I won’t repeat this kind of stupidity. Please forgive me for the last time.

With best wishes
