“Who in your life deserves a sincere apology and a shift in your behavior?”

Apologizing is an act of generosity. It acknowledges a wrongdoing and seeks to make amends. We cannot change the past, but a sincere apology and a request for forgiveness can create the foundation for a better future.

Make note of the word “can.”

Words alone without a definitive and observable change in behavior aren’t usually enough to mend life’s fences for long.


To whom might you owe a sincere apology? What do you plan to say and what new promises regarding your future behavior will make things right?
