Three words; three meanings
Below are the clues
They overlap to form me
Use me with excuse

My prefix is a prefix of

My infix is a mistake,

Is it

INTERRUPT?

My prefix is a prefix of being worldwide

being worldwide = 'international' - Prefix 'inter'

My infix is a mistake, forgive and set aside

err is a synonym for mistake

My suffix is a suffix of bursting outside

erupt is a synonym for bursting out

For my attention, I disturb you, (and the earlier 'Use me with excuse')

When you interrupt someone you might say 'excuse me' before disturbing them.

Therefore:

inter + err + rupt (overlapping) forms interrupt
