    Hi there, "was" or "have been": Which one should I in the following context?


    "John, I am sorry for that incident in the last year and that's why I have come to your house. I have been/was here many times before and I'm here again to tell you that I did not want to insult you. Please end the matter now and let our friendship flourish."
