how to apologize

YYou’ve made a mess. And you need to clean it up. But, GOD DAMN it’s so uncomfortable to apologize to someone when you’ve fucked up. What do you usually do instead? Maybe sweep it under the rug? Maybe try various acts of kindness so they magically get the hint that you’re sorry? Totally ghost them because it’s just tooooo embarrassing and shameful to face?

I get it. It is so uncomfortable and truly vulnerable to own up to your mistakes and actually ask for forgiveness from someone you have wronged. But, never fear, I’ve gottchu covered. In this episode, I share a 6 step process to delivering an effective and genuine apology. It may not be easy, but at least you can lay your head down at night knowing that you did your part.

This pod explores:

  • The importance of asking permission to apologize (Wait, what? Yes, it’s a thing)
  • The number one place you may get tripped up during an apology and how to avoid it
  • How to shift from focusing on WHAT happened to how the other person FEELS
  • What it really sounds like to own your shit
