Sorry can be the HARDEST thing to say to your partner — I am certain you agree!
By saying this, you are admitting that you’ve messed up and have hurt one of those people you love the most. It is never simple.
However, the thing is, we are all human and we ALL make mistakes. And regrettably, sometimes we make mistakes which really hurt our partners.
When this occurs, it is our job to take responsibility for our actions and apologize, EVEN whenever your mistake is so BIG you feel like there is almost “too much” to apologize for.
It is a fact that the deeper the hurt, the longer the recovery process will require.

5 Step to Say “I’m Sorry” and Really Mean It. God Please Help Me Get My Husband Back
1. Forgive yourself
You might be thinking something like: “How on earth could I ever forgive myself?” Or “How can an apology begin with ME?”
But there are several reasons why it’s imperative to try to make peace with yourself once you have made a mistake.
To start with, dwelling on thoughts that are remorseful and self-loathing is going to use up all of your emotional energy.
This is NOT going to be helpful for you or your marriage, since it keeps the focus on the PROBLEM, rather than what you can do to FIX it. If you can accept the mistake you’ve made, you’ll have the ability to focus your energy on what you could do to make up for it.
Let me be clear here. By forgiving yourself, you’re not clearing yourself of any blame… You freely admit that you have made a mistake.
However, you’re also acknowledging that the behaviour you have done wrong does not mean you are a terrible person as a whole and you have the opportunity to be your best self from now on…
2. Apologize to your spouse and take full responsibility
When it comes to saying sorry, the sooner the better. However, an apology needs to be said with real sincerity and feeling to be effective.
So you will need time before you confer with your spouse, take this moment to calm down. An angry or sarcastic apology will make the situation even more worse.
As difficult as it can, look into your spouse’s eyes when you go to confer with them.
For example; “I am so sorry that I forgot we had plans for dinner tonight. I know how much you were looking forward to going out and how disappointed and hurt you have felt when I came home late”.
Lastly, never never NEVER say “I’m sorry” and follow this up with a “but” or an excuse.
For instance: “I am so sorry that I forgot we had plans for dinner tonight. I know how much you were looking forward to heading out and how frustrated and hurt you have to’ve felt when I came home. BUT the reason I forgot about dinner is because YOU didn’t remind me this morning. You know I am busy with work and find it hard to keep track of what is going on sometimes”.
This is going to make your apology meaningless, and also imply that you’re BLAMING your spouse — which is just going to push them farther away.
So accept full responsibility for the actions… don’t attempt to reevaluate your error to make yourself feel better (because believe me, it will not work!) And concentrate just on YOUR actions, not your spouse’s. God Please Help Me Get My Husband Back
3. Make promises for the future
Come up with a plan to make certain your mistake won’t be repeated in the future and convey this to your spouse. Make sure any promises you make can be followed up on.
“I will have absolutely no further contact with that person. I will delete him/her from my phone, Facebook, Twitter, and also will inform you immediately if he/she tries to get in touch with me.
I’m pleased to give you open access to all of my account and my phone if this would be helpful to you|If this would be helpful to you, I am pleased to give you open access. I promise to keep in regular communication with you about what I am doing and from today on I will always be at home when I say I will.
I really want to make this work and will do anything is needed. I can clear my schedule out of work so that I could spend as much time with you as possible — as much time as you’re comfortable with at this time.” God Please Help Me Get My Husband Back
4. Accept your spouse’s reaction
A frequent premise that a partner frequently makes is that when they have apologized, their spouse or spouse should stop being sad or angry and give them forgiveness.
And when this doesn’t happen, the apologizing spouse stinks and says something along the lines of: “I have just apologized! What more to you want me to do?! Why can not you just accept it and move on?!”
The thing is, you can ask your husband or spouse for their forgiveness, but you can’t FORCE them to forgive you. Whether they do or not is their own decision.
Therefore don’t expect anything from your spouse at the moment.
Yes, you’re making yourself vulnerable and yes, it might feel excruciating being fulfilled angry words or by your spouse’s silence. This truly is the HARDEST part about saying “I’m sorry”.
Therefore avoid acting defensively AT ALL COSTS, despite the fact that this may be your first instinct — since it is only going to undo the good you have just accomplished by apologizing.
And now is definitely not the time to start pointing fingers and trying to get back at your spouse for whatever they have done.
All you can do now, as hard as it can be, is give your spouse time to come to terms with your own apology and see for themselves that the changes on your behaviour. Forgiveness will come with time. God Please Help Me Get My Husband Back
5. Follow your apology up with positive actions
Saying sorry is vital, but it isn’t sufficient on its own to heal your spouse’s hurt and move. It’s the ACTIONS that follow which really do most of the relationship fixing.
Apologies need to be backed up with favorable changes in behavior, as otherwise your partner will eliminate faith in you and also will become more hurt and betrayed as a result.
If you’ve betrayed your spouse in some manner, the secret is to be ABSOLUTELY transparent with your partner in future — don’t attempt to hide or cover up anything.
Keep the lines of communication open and be honest about what — where you’re, what you are doing, that you’re with, what you’re spending… EVERYTHING.
This might seem over-the-top, but the simple truth is that your spouse is very likely to be feeling really vulnerable right now, and their hope in you has been ruined. So in order to their trust to be regained, you have to leave literally no doubts in their own mind.
And remember, one huge gesture of flowers and chocolates once you’ve messed up is fine, but it is not likely to get exactly the identical impact as continuous small actions to improve your behavior and reveal your partner how much you value them.
Even if your partner doesn’t accept your apology straight away, DO NOT GIVE UP. By continuing to show how sorry you’re through loving actions, you’ve got the hope of regaining their love and trust. God Please Help Me Get My Husband Back
