Have you made a mistake and want to apologize to someone for it? Go further than asking for a mere apology, ask this person to forgive you for the harm you may have caused him or her with your words or actions. Asking for forgiveness will lift a weight from you shoulders and your conscience. It doesn't matter if someone forgives you or not, what counts is asking someone to forgive you.

Feel free to write your experiences the way you wish. You can use your own ideas, or use the questions below as a guide. In the event you use a question, you should only answer that question. You may also answer several questions in separate entries and allow us to choose the best one for the book. Whatever your preference, only a maximum of 2,000 characters will be published.
