Hello. This time, my question is:
what is the best apology you've ever apologized?
Mine is...
Once I did something that hurt my bff, then he didn't want to talk to me anymore, and I did that:
I posted a status that was saying "I've learnt to not mess people's lives", and I asked all of my friends to post a comment with the "Forgive Jala" sentence under my status. Creative idea lol.

a little personal, but i'm currently in a fight with my partner of 5 years. i called him this morning and left a vm on his phone saying "I'm sorry waifu" (jokingly i call him waifu) in my best japanese, then took to fb and posted "sad reacts only" so all my friends have reacted with a sad-react face. he reacted with an angry face. but this is probably my funniest apology i've done.

oh good, that happens. my best friend and i fight a lot too. but my boyfriend and i rarely fight, this was our first fight in like 8 months or so, we've learned how to avoid arguments with each other, so this fight was a big deal to him. thankfully things are okay because we really don't like fighting

I'm unsure of how to answer that because I don't think I've quite understood the question. Is the question: what's the best apology you've ever given to someone?

I'm human too, I'm bound to make mistakes. If I feel I have wronged someone, my apology is always the same: "I apologize, I was in the wrong and will be mindful the next time we come back to that topic". I don't beg for forgiveness or ask to do an act of kindness for forgiveness, if I was wrong I'll admit it and we move on. I know some people want meaningful apologizes and might think I'm not being sincere, but what's so sincere about a fact? It's like saying "say the sky is blue, but say it like you mean it and say it nicely" when all I can tell you is "the sky is blue" with the straightest face and the bluntest tone in my arsenal.

I also ask the same of others: never beg me nor pour yourself over to ask me for forgiveness or go over the top with an apology, a simple "I apologize" or "I'm sorry" will suffice.
