In short, make them feel important.

8. Ask for punishment
“What can I do to mend all this?” Ask them for punishment for what you did. Tell them that you are sorry and that you can do anything for their forgiveness. Prepare a list of punishments and ask them to choose one of them for you. If they refuse, ask them to punish you according to their will. It will surely melt down you dear one’s heart and they will surely forgive you.

7. Accept and promise not to repeat it
Accept your mistake. Remember that you don’t put the blame on them while sorting out. It can lead to the worsening of the situation. Make up your mind to apologize, and don’t blame them for anything when you know that it was your mistake. Don’t play the blame game to be brief. Quietly accept that you have realised your mistake and you are sorry for the same. Promise them not to repeat the same mistake ever.
6. Letter/Note
Write a letter or note with all your feelings in it. The letter should be showing that you are sorry and can’t afford to stay away from them. Tell them that you love them and you are embarrassed for whatever you did. Include your promise to not repeat it in future. You can leave small notes saying ‘I am sorry’ at various places like their cupboard, on the fridge, on their pillow, in their bag, write it on the mirror with a lipstick or anywhere you are sure they will check. This actually works. Your efforts will count for sure.

5. Prepare a card
If you want to show a person how much you want them and their forgiveness, you need to put some efforts. Nothing is for free. You have to work a little harder. You made a mistake now apologize in a nice way. Prepare a card for them to say that you are sorry for what you did.

4. Plan a day out
This works well. Or you can say that it works when he/she is ready to go out with you even after your mistake. If she/he is not at all ready to go out with you, ask her friends to take her out with some excuse and show up at some decided place. She/he will definitely note down your efforts. Plan a day out and include his/her favourite places in the list. Plan a lunch out at his/her favourite eating joint or restaurant. Make sure to get some time in between to say that you are sorry for your mistakes. Make him/her feel special that day. Do not fight at any cost. It’s your mistake and they can get hyper at times, make sure you don’t, you can afford to be sober for a day.

3. Gifts
Ah! Gifts are a way out in every situation. If someone is angry with you, gifts always work. May be box of chocolates to melt you dear one’s heart? If you are extreme late for a meeting with someone, get a minute or two more to pick a box of chocolate or a bunch of flowers to save yourself. And if you have done something really bad, plan for a better gift. Tell them through your gifts how much they mean to you. To add to the value of the gift, don’t buy them from a gift gallery, prepare it yourself. A little effort is always appreciated. You can also prepare a video or collage highlighting your happy moments.

2. Sincerely utter the word
Sincerity in your apology is must. If you are sincere with your word, it will be a quick forgiveness. Tell them with sincerity that you are sorry. If the person gets to know that you are really sorry for what you did there are better chances of getting rid of the charges against you. ‘Sorry’ is the word which can end many problems. So, don’t hesitate much to say it. It won’t bring down your status; we can assure you of that at least.

1. Mend it
First of all make sure that you mended what wrong you have caused. Apology is wasted if the mistake is not corrected. If it is still possible to mend your mistake then you must do it first because nothing else will work if you fail to do so. The one affected must be waiting for this. So, as soon as you get to know that you are wrong, mend your mistake before it gets too late. Once the situation is in control, they will forgive you happily.
