BEST WAYS TO APOLOGISE TO YOUR PARTNER

Saying ‘I’m sorry’ is one easy way to save your relationship / marriage, but surprisingly many couples find this difficult to do.
Apologising to your partner when you have wronged them doesn’t show weakness but strength and it also proves that you value your relationship. Many relationships have died and faded away so easily just because one or both partners never apologised.
In some partners, it isn’t that they don’t want to apologise, but they don’t even know how to.
There are some effective ways you can apologise to your partner that would make them turn around quickly.
1. ADMIT YOU WERE WRONG
This is the first step to apology; there are no buts in apologies. Admit that you were wrong and take total responsibility for your actions. You make it easier for your partner to forgive you when you take responsibility.
2. A DEEP HUG
A deep hug in some situations can make your partner turn around quickly. It shows you are sorry and didn’t mean to hurt them and it also shows that you care about your partner and value the relationship a lot.
3. WRITE A LETTER
Sometimes, apologising face-to-face with your partner can be quite difficult, especially if they won’t listen to you. Writing a letter in this situation can set the path for reconciliation. Write a letter accepting responsibility and it should reveal how sorry you really are and that such a situation wouldn’t happen again. Written words can sometimes pass a message that spoken words wouldn’t pass.
4. SLIP A NOTE SOMEWHERE
Another way to apologise to your partner is by slipping an unexpected note somewhere they would easily find it. Slip a very short and simple note somewhere your partner would find them and your partner would easily forgive you thereafter. The note can bear “I’m sorry honey, you are the best”, or “I’m sorry love, it won’t happen again”. This kind of apology is short, precise and highly effective — and it would most likely leave a smile on your partner’s face.
5. IT SHOULD BE ALMOST IMMEDIATE
The apology should be almost immediate in the sense that you shouldn’t leave your partner for days and weeks or even months before apologising — this would create grudges, disharmony and leave bad seeds in the relationship. Don’t wait for too long before apologising.
6. MAKE A LIST OF WHY YOUR PARTNER IS IMPORTANT TO YOU
This is another highly effective way to apologise to your partner. Write your partner a note or send an email to them revealing the top five things that make your partner so special and why your partner is so important to you.
This type of apology would definitely leave your partner smiling.
7. SOCIAL MEDIA
Social media is also another effective way to apologise to your partner. Saying you’re sorry on a social media platform is more like a public apology; by this, your partner would know you are deeply sorry. Though, not everyone feels comfortable with a public apology.
8. GIVE YOUR PARTNER A GIFT AT WORK
Talk about being romantic, you can actually be romantic to your partner while asking for forgiveness. Send your partner a gift while they are at work with a simple note saying “I’m deeply sorry”. You would surely make your partner the envy of their colleagues at work that day. There is no better way to apologise than when you put a smile on your partner’s face.
Sometimes, it’s not even about apologising but how you apologise that really matters. Apology is an important part of a relationship; couples that apologize to each other have better relationships and that’s a fact. by Paul Sayefunmi Godwin
