Apologize, if necessary.
Relationships can be strained if one partner feels hurt, whether after a fight, over reckless talk, or an old, old resentment. To some extent, all couples experience this kind of situation. The important thing is to open a dialogue and apologize for bad deeds. By apologizing, you will confirm your commitment to your spouse and your relationship.
- To apologize properly, you need to be sincere, specific, and admit your mistake. If you’ve disrespected your girlfriend or undermined her trust, accept your mistakes. This doesn’t mean you should bear all the blame, but admit your share of the blame.
- Be sincere and specific. Apologize only to make amends and repair the damage, not for any other reason. At the same time, be clear about the reason for your apology and your conduct. For example, you could say this, “I’m sorry I left furious after our discussion. I understand that it hurts you and that you felt humiliated. Forgive me, please. “
- Avoid sneaky excuses. Such apologies are not sincere and do not show any responsibility on your part. Examples are: “I’m sorry if my actions offended you,” or “I’m sorry if you took it wrong. “
- Don’t wait for an apology. It is important to forgive each other, but your partner needs time to understand their feelings. If you ask her to apologize, it will be as if you are demanding something from her.
