How to Craft an Apology Message: 20 Ideas


Everyone makes mistakes. Inevitably, there will be times in life when we must seek forgiveness from friends, family, lovers or business partners because of our moments of folly. However, this can be a mammoth task that not only takes courage but also the right words to convey a sincere apology. If you’re in need of some help to craft the perfect apology message, here are some ideas you can explore. 

For friends

Had a petty argument with your bestie that turned into a cold war? Try apologising with messages like these:

  • “I just want to say how sorry I am. I really hope you can forgive me and let us be friends again.”
  • “I feel really bad that you are offended. Please forgive me and put our friendship above my mistake.”
  • “I am sorry. Please let us move past this and be friends again.”
  • “Sorry that I messed up, your friendship means a lot to me.”

  • “I’m truly sorry that I’ve let you down despite your constant effort to nurture me.”
  • “Allow me to apologise for my changed behaviour. Please give me another chance to prove myself to you.”
  • “I am truly sorry. I promise to try my best so that you will be proud of me again.” 
  • “I can’t stop thinking about how wrong I’ve been. I’m very sorry.”

  • “I’m so sorry that I’ve overlooked your needs, please give me another chance to make it up to you.”  
  • “I never meant to hurt you. Please accept my love again, this time I’ll do better.“
