DEAR HARRIETTE: I went years without speaking to someone who told a cruel lie about me.
That lie affected my friendships and even my family. It was so bad and so hurtful that part of me never recovered.
It was hard to believe that someone I cared a lot about would intentionally lie about me to a host of other people. They recently reached out to me to apologize privately for the lie that they told.
The disrespect was public, so I think the apology should be public, too.
In order for me to move forward, I want a detailed public retraction of the lie. Is this a reasonable request?
DEAR PUBLIC APOLOGY: Start by meeting with this person and listening to what they have to say.
Harriette Cole: Because I’m single, they treat me unfairly
Harriette Cole: Should I fly to my daughter’s town to investigate her black eye?
Harriette Cole: My new neighbors are rude about my fashion sense
Harriette Cole: He refuses to change his look when he meets my parents
Harriette Cole: She talked about me on her podcast, and I am not happy about it
Find out why they chose to say those hurtful, untrue things in the first place. Explain the repercussions of their lie and how negatively it impacted your life.
Thank the person …read more
