Sometimes when we act on pure instinct, or adrenaline, we do so in a way that doesn’t allow us to evaluate every possible outcome. Did you react too quickly recently? Did someone not appreciate your sick sense of humor? Or did you ‘tell it like it is’ and end up with a foot or two in your mouth? If so the only way to recover the situation is to own it and apologize. Maybe tell a little white lie or two if it will make someone feel better. Grovel if you have to. The situation is totally reparable, just remember who you upset and that you need to use a little more tact with them in the future.
