8 Ways to Get Someone to Forgive You ...


No one likes to have a friend mad about something that happened in the past.

I try to make amends when I can, but have finally learned that I canโ€™t please everyone.

You may not be able to get someone to forget a thing of the past, but it is possible to receive forgiveness for whatever it was.

The 8 ways to get someone to forgive you that I have listed below might prove to be useful someday.

Take a look and see what you think.

8. Ask with Sincerity

Sometimes all it takes is a bit of asking.

People can be funny about how they go about forgiving someone.

Most will offer forgiveness on their own, but there actually are people who have to be asked to forgive a person.

This could mean that the process might take a long time if the person wanting forgiveness isnโ€™t aware he/she has to ask for it.

7. Show Them Utter Kindness

A little bit of kindness goes a long way.2

Being nice to someone who is mad at you will usually make them realize you are truly a nice person and they will wonder why they were mad at you in the first place.

Sometimes a nice gesture will soften hearts enough to dissolve all anger and forgiveness is sort of a given.

Many friendships and serious relationships are patched this way.

6. Earn Their Forgiveness

Demanding forgiveness only drives people further away.

Depending on what happened, it might take time for you to earn forgiveness.

There are some things that people just arenโ€™t willing to forgive.

Earning forgiveness requires a lot of hard work on your part.

You basically have to prove yourself to whomever is angry with you.

It will be up to you to show this person that you are worthy of being forgiven.
