Apologize Often

By Jaimi Jones
Learning to apologize can be difficult. There was a time when I thought apologizing was saying I was wrong. That is not always the case. Sometimes we are apologizing because we are sorry about how our words or actions hurt someone's feelings.
Apologize Often

Learning to apologize can be difficult. There was a time when I thought apologizing was saying I was wrong. That is not always the case. Sometimes we are apologizing because we are sorry about how our words or actions hurt someone's feelings. Apologizing is not about someone was right and the other person was wrong. Apologizing can be a win-win situation.

 

Apology: an admission of error or discourtesy accompanied by an expression of regret

Sometimes practicing an apology out loud with yourself, in front of a mirror, can be helpful. The best apology is made in person, face to face. Sometimes that is not possible, and a phone call may suffice. Remember our body language and tone can speak just as loud as words. The least personal would be email or text. Sometimes, it might be easier to write or text the apology. If this is the case, asking the person to call or meet to discuss further might be helpful.

 

"Never ruin an apology with an excuse." 

Benjamin Franklin

Ephesians 4:32 ESV "Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one other as God in Christ forgave you."

Romans 12:18 ESV "If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all."

1 Thessalonians 5:11 ESV "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."

Keep the end goal in mind. When apologizing to your Lover(husband/wife). The goal should be that you both are able to forgive each other and have resolution.

When apologizing to someone else, ask yourself a few questions:

*What is the reason for the apology?

*Is this relationship able to be reconciled?

*Is this an apology that may not result in reconciliation?

Lastly, I would remind you that you can only be responsible for yourself, you can not make the other person forgive you. There are times when apologizing is only the first step and time may be needed for forgiveness to be fully given.

My purpose out here today is to share this article to the world about how Doctor Odunga helped me in getting back my EX-boyfriend that broke up with me 4 months ago. I tried all i can to make him see reasons with me so that we can continue our relationship but he denied me. Thank God for giving me the thought of going into the internet for help, i searched properly and i saw different reviews of Doctor Odunga and i insisted in giving it a try by contacting him via what's app on (+2348167159012). He gave me reason to live again and he prepared a spell and told me that my Ex-boyfriend will come back to me within 28 hours. Can you believe it, my EX-boyfriend came back to me and our wedding will hold Soon. Contact him now!!! if you need any help. Email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and he does a lot of spells. Once again i want to say am very grateful for your help
