Apology Letters

Apology letters are letters that fall both into the formal as well as informal letters. If written in a formal context, an apology letter will be shirt and practical and concise, ending after the apology has been made. However, if the apology letter is informal, as most apology letters are, then the letter can be really big or small depending on the people involved in it. Apology letters are written frequently between parents and children and even more frequently between friends and lovers and spouses. These letters often contain personal details referencing the sentences to arguments, discussions, or fights that have happened in the past. Such letters may also contain a lot of indirect speech, as sometimes when making an apology it’s necessary to quote certain people or describe what they said.

  • Always make the apology first and then explain and justify things. If you start with justifying and then apologize, the reader might feel like you never wanted to apologize in the first place and are therefore only tooting your own horn.
  • In your explanation for the apology [if there’s any explanation at all], be concise no matter how sentimental the issue is. Being clear with your words and emotions always helps put the reader at ease about your motive, therefore making him more probable to forgive you and let bygones be bygones.
  • An apology letter should also contain the promise that the mistake that has happened will not happen again. This may sound flaky but in truth this reassurance means a lot for certain people. Convincing the person that you will be careful not to commit this mistake again will once again help the person know and understand that you are genuinely sorry and that the mistake that has happened won’t be repeated.

Hi.

I’m writing this letter to say sorry to you about the terrible fight we had this Saturday. I think it was awful. Also, it was rather unfair of me to judge you so unnecessarily and then leave without making any amends about it. I wish to say sorry and am saying it now: Sorry for acting so horribly. Honestly, I shouldn’t have.

Sometimes, you just have a bad day and have no idea what to do. I suppose Saturday was a bad day for me and I wasn’t paying attention to what I was saying. And I’d also had a few fights with my parents of late. I’m sorry if I took it all out on you.

Please forgive me for acting so rudely and unfairly. I promise that this won’t be happen. I hope we’re still good friends.

Take care,
