Verbal apology sound Ok, but...
Verbal apology doesn't work. I accept only positive and permanent behavioural change from my clients and students.

No one is perfect. There is no such thing as going through life not hurting someone. And btw, you have to ask forgiveness if someone was hurt by you, so it doesnt always mean you were wrong. it just means someone got hurt by what you did.

Sorry might be a one-way street
We cannot control how another will choose to receive a sincere apology. You made the step of placing your anger aside and saying 'sorry', and that places you in the right position with her, with G-d, and hopefully made you feel better as well.

It's trully hard to say sorry!
It is really hard to say sorry to someone;when you know that the person is so angry with you, that they may want to kill you.

Very powerful word. Thank you for sharing something I needed to hear!

I see the story in sorry, in what brings us to this place at this time, a place of true repentance and forgiveness. And I also see within the word itself, the magic of story because it IS, within story there is, sorry if you listen to the aural sounds of words.
There is an alchemical magic to this story, all of our stories, and that is LOVE.
I love this most beautiful animation using words, the word SORRY, to convey something so deep, so important, and so lovely.
With thanks to Aish and those who created this beautiful, Beautiful, work.

applying this to heal separation and divorce
I would love to see a video on how to apply this to marriage, separation, and divorce, particularly when one spouse is less observant than the other. 5769 was a very difficult year personally, alot of mutual hurt, I regret my share in the pain and apologized for it, my ex is atheist and ignored this apology. I am interested in how this plays into the themes of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashana and the hope for forgiveness and a better 5770
