In this episode, we talk all about how to construct apologies that sincerely express empathy, regret for having messed up, and a promise to do better in the future. Once you’ve taken the time to really think about what you’re saying and why you’re saying it, offering a solid apology isn’t so elusive. We also talk about getting better at receiving apologies, an oft-overlooked aspect of the apology process.

P.S. On an upcoming episode we will be answering your questions about friendships—starting them, ending them, maintaining them, etc. If you have a question or need advice (or want to hear our thoughts about being or having a friend in 2021), we want you to ask us.

Email us your question at OhILikeThatpod@gmail.com. Or you can record a voice memo and send that to us at OhILikeThatpod@gmail.com, and we will play your memo in the episode. Just make sure you tell us your name (and if you’re writing in, please let us know how to pronounce it) and your pronouns.

If you want to submit a question anonymously or would like to send us a voice memo but not have it played on the air, just let us know that too!
