HOW TO SAY "I'M SORRY" WHEN YOU HURT SOMEONE: 5 CREATIVE WAYS
When we hurt someone, sometimes just saying “I’m sorry” doesn’t cut it. We need to show it through changed behavior, and why not? Through fun and creative ways.
Bake Them a Cake
Are they a foodie? If yes, it’s time to head to the kitchen and bake a cake in their favorite flavor. You can decorate it with a fun and loving message, something that makes them smile.
If they don’t have a sweet tooth, you can always cook them their favorite dish.
Say it With Music
Music is a form of language, which makes it a perfect way to accompany your apology. If writing poetry or song lyrics it’s not your strongest suit, then don’t worry; you can always go with the professionals, musicians who have already done that part of the work for you.
It’s not just about dedicating a song. You need to do a lot more than that. Compile playlists of songs that remind you of them, of special moments you have lived together, and maybe write them a letter expressing how each song makes you feel about them.
Write it Down
Sometimes we find it difficult to express how we feel when we’re face-to-face, we may use the wrong words or say the wrong thing all over again, but when we write it down, our thought process is much clearer; we can avoid saying something wrong that can be misinterpreted. Overall, writing a letter is always recommended to clear our heads and express our thoughts concisely.
Some people love language is gift-giving, so this can be a good way to worm your way back into their good side. Obviously, it can’t be just any other gift. It needs to be special and meaningful; it has to be a gift that comes from your heart and something that express how sorry you are.

Accepting Your Mistake
Remember, the best apology is to change your behavior (if it was an action) and own up to what you did wrong. You can bake them hundreds of cakes or give them the most expensive jewelry, but if you don’t change, issues may arise later on.
