Apology Letters

   Sorry For Being Defensive

Dear {Name},

I'm sorry. When you confronted me about {situation/behavior}, instead of giving you the attention and consideration that you deserved, I went on the defensive.

I wish I had reacted differently. Of course you were right that {situation}. I still do want to push back on {element}, due to {reason}, but I should have done so calmly and with respect.

Please feel free to come to me in the future with your concerns. I realize now why I was so defensive, which will ultimately help me to be more open to discussion moving forward.
