#EngTips: Receiving apologies

In this article, I’ll share some expressions you can use when someone apologize to you.

So, when was the last time someone apologize to you? How did you respond to it?

Here are some expressions you can use to accept an apology:

  1. Don’t worry about it. Arti: Jangan risau soal itu.
  2. Forget about it. Arti: Lupakan hal itu.
  3. Don’t mention it. Arti: Jangan ungkit hal itu.
  4. It’s not important. Arti: Itu tidak penting.
  5. It doesn’t matter. Arti: Itu tidak penting/bermasalah.
  6. It happens. Arti: Itu biasa terjadi.
  7. No problem. Arti: Tidak ada masalah.
  8. It’s all right. Arti: Semua baik-baik saja.
  9. It’s ok. Arti: Tidak apa-apa.
  10. I don’t mind. Arti: Aku tidak keberatan.
  11. Let’s forget about it. Arti: Ayo kita lupakan hal itu.
  12. We’ll say no more about it. Arti: Kita tidak akan bicarakan hal itu lagi.
  13. We’ll consider the matter closed. Arti: Kita anggap hal ini tuntas.

One wise friend said, “There’s no shame nor cowardice in an apology. The best apology is not expressed in words, but in action.”

That same friend also said,

“Life becomes easier when you learn to accept an apology you never got.”

And that’s a wrap! I hope you like this article and find the discussion useful, fellas. :)
