How Important is Apologizing in Relationships?

temp-post-image

Relationships require work and healthy communication. All couples, friends, and family members have arguments, what we do with them before, during, and after matters. This covers the aftermath of an argument and if there is an apology needed. Read the full article from Jaime Bronstein for great examples of apologies.

1. Be genuine and specific for what you are apologizing for.

2. Don't use "if". For example, "I'm sorry if you feel that way". Make it a point to validate the way the other person is feeling, even if you don't agree with it.

3. Be okay with taking accountability of your actions that may have added to the situation.

4. An apology should happen whether actions were on purpose or a mistake.
