I said I was sorry. I took responsibility for my actions wihtout blaming others. I tried to explain my actions, my lack of skill and my deficiencies. I wasn’t able to fix the hurt I created, and I acknowledged that. And I wasn’t able to promise that this will never happen again. So I said that I was working on trying to get better. That’s all I can do.
And I got lucky, because he felt better.
It wasn’t a great apology, but he made it be good enough.
