Apology Letters

   Sorry I Was Only Trying To Help

Dear {Name},

I'm sorry for bringing up {unwelcome topic}. I was only trying to help. Clearly, we weren't on the same page in this discussion.

I do wish that we could work on how we communicate with one another. I feel awful when I'm misread, and even worse when what I see as reaching out is instead received as an attack.

Now that I know that you're not comfortable talking about {topic}, I will of course respect that. Please know that you can always be open with me about what you are and are not OK with discussing. I really do want the best for you, and I apologize for the times when I've overstepped.
