Day 28 of 29: The 6 Elements of an Effective Apology

Following research done by Ohio State University, Upworthy.com published a list of six elements of an effective apology. At this season of self-reflection and reconciliation, these are good reminders that saying I am sorry is only this first step. Here are the six elements:

First, an expression of regret. In other words, say you're sorry.

An explanation of what went wrong.

An acknowledgment of responsibility: It's my fault.

A declaration of repentance – I won't let it happen again.

This is another big one: offering to make it right.

Lastly, a request for forgiveness.
