When it comes to what you should actually say in your letter, there are a few key things that you should include. First, you need to state what you did wrong and why it was wrong. This will help the other person understand why you are apologizing and show that you know why what you did was wrong. Next, you should express how sorry you are for your actions and how much they have affected the other person. Finally, conclude with an offer to make things right and a request for forgiveness.
