My friend and I got into an argument.  We both exchanged words and we are not talking.  What should I do now: wait, tell her that I forgive her, or apologize?

If the initial anger has quieted, then I recommend the humble approach by gently offering an apology.  Often, a sincere offer of apology helps the other to forgive.  From a philosophical perspective, one can forgive unconditionally without an apology, but the apology does help.
