   Apology For Bringing Up Painful Subject

Dear {Name},

I need to apologize again for bring up {painful subject}. Please believe that my intention was not to be hurtful. I would never intentionally call you pain.

Honestly, I {had forgotten/thought you'd broached the subject yourself}. This is no excuse, however. I should have noticed that your reaction was one of sadness and hurt. My intuition, my tact, and my manners all failed me, and as a result I failed to be a good {friend/colleague/relative}.

I hope that you will forgive me. I also hope it goes without saying that I won't mention the subject again. I value our relationship so much.
