To make or not, an apology, to receive or not

Whatever we have done, 
 it must have caused some effect on others.
Some may even be adverse effects.
If we feel guilty or uncomfortable,
we may want to make an apology 
to the person being hurt.

To make an apology more effective
 to elicit forgiveness and
reconciliation, 
we should know what kind of 
inter-personal relationship with the person 
and the person's particular characteristics. 

Some professionals advise that if 
we don’t know
the person well enough to determine 
which type of apology to make, 
we can offer 
“detailed apologies with multiple
components” 
since some components out of all 
may rightly touch upon 
what is important to the person jurt. 





Adele - Hello

Hello, it's me, I was wondering

If after all these years you'd like to meet to go over everything

They say that time's supposed to heal, yeah

But I ain't done much healing
Hello, can you hear me?

I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be

When we were younger and free

I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet
There's such a difference between us

And a million miles
Hello from the other side

I must've called a thousand times

To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done

But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside

At least I can say that I've tried

To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart

But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore
Hello, how are you?

It's so typical of me to talk about myself, I'm sorry

I hope that you're well

Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened?
It's no secret

That the both of us are running out of time
So hello from the other side

I must've called a thousand times

To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done

But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside

At least I can say that I've tried

To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart

But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore
Ooh, anymore

Ooh, anymore

Ooh, anymore

Anymore...
Hello from the other side

I must've called a thousand times

To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done

But when I call you never seem to be home
Hello from the outside

At least I can say that I've tried

To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart

But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore
