Reflection Question

Can you describe a time you either needed to apologize or forgive? How did it make you feel? How did it make the other person feel?

How to offer a Big-hearted Apology Using your Tools:

1. Use your Listening Tool: Pause. Listen. Reflect.

2. Use your Empathy Tool: I understand [how this was hurtful]. And I'm sorry [for that thing I did].

3. Use your Apology Tool: Can you forgive me?
