Effective apology strategy: how to find forgiveness with a friend

Forget about it. Let some time pass. Let them calm down to the lowest level. No right decision can be taken when upset.

Get to chat with them online. Start by a formal "hi" to some normal gist to see if they are calm. Then move in and appologize.

Do not accuse. Do not start with the story. Start with your feelings and pressures. Be open and allow them to open about anything.

Do not argue. Think before you speak. When the conversation starts getting hot, cut it and let time pass.

Understand when people don't like you and move on. You can't force love, nor approval, even friendship.
