How To Get Your Husband Back From An Emotional Affair

Sorry can be the HARDEST thing to say to your spouse — I am sure you agree!

By saying so, you are admitting that you have messed up and have hurt among those people you love the most. It’s never simple.

But the thing is, we’re all human and we ALL make mistakes. And unfortunately, sometimes we make mistakes which actually hurt our partners.

When this occurs, it’s our job to take responsibility for our actions and apologize, EVEN when your mistake is so BIG you really feel like there’s almost “too much” to apologize for.

It’s true that the deeper the hurt, the longer the healing process will take.

5 Step to Say “I Am Sorry” and Truly Mean It. How To Get Your Husband Back From An Emotional Affair

 

1. Forgive yourself

You might be thinking something like: “How on earth can I ever forgive myself?” Or “How can an apology start with ME?

But there are several reasons why it is imperative to try to make peace with yourself after you have made a mistake.

First of all, 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 useful for you or your marriage, since it keeps the focus on the issue, rather than what you can do to FIX it. If you can accept the mistake you’ve made, you will be able to focus your energy on what you could do in order to compensate for it.

Allow me to be clear here. By forgiving yourself, you’re not clearing yourself of any blame… You openly admit that you’ve made a mistake.

However, you are also acknowledging that the behaviour you have done wrong does not mean you’re a terrible person as a whole and you’ve got the chance to be your very best self from now on…

 

 

2. Apologize to your partner and take full responsibility

When it comes to stating sorry, the sooner the better. However, an apology needs to be said with feeling and real sincerity to work.

So you will need time before you apologize to your partner, take this moment to calm down. An sarcastic or angry apology is only going to make the situation even more worse.

As difficult as it is, look at your spouse’s eyes when you go to confer with them.

For example; “I’m so sorry that I forgot we had plans for dinner tonight. I know how much you were looking forward to going out and just how disappointed and hurt you must’ve felt when I came home late”.

Lastly, never never NEVER say “I’m sorry” and follow it up with a “but” or an excuse.

For instance: “I’m so sorry I forgot we had plans for dinner tonight. I know how much you had been looking forward to heading out and how frustrated and hurt you must’ve felt when I came home. BUT the reason I forgot about dinner is because YOU did not remind me this afternoon. You know I’m busy with work and find it hard to keep track of what is happening sometimes”.

This is going to make your apology meaningless, and also indicate that you are BLAMING your spouse — that is only going to push them farther away.

So take full responsibility for your actions… don’t attempt to reevaluate your error to make yourself feel better (because believe me, it will not work!) And concentrate only on YOUR actions, not your spouse’s. How To Get Your Husband Back From An Emotional Affair

 

3. Make promises for the future

Come up with a plan to make certain your mistake will not be repeated in the future and communicate this to your partner. Just make sure any promises you make could be followed upon.

For instance:

“I have absolutely no further contact with that person. I will delete him/her from my telephone, Facebook, Twitter, and also will let you know immediately if he/she ever tries to get in contact with me.

I’m pleased to give you open access to all of my accounts and my phone if that would be helpful to you|If that would be helpful to you, I am happy to give you access to every one my accounts and my phone. I promise to keep in regular communication with you about what I am doing and from now 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 will 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.” How To Get Your Husband Back From An Emotional Affair

 

4. Accept your spouse’s reaction

A common premise that a partner often makes is that when they’ve apologized, their spouse or spouse should stop being mad or sad and give them forgiveness.

And if this does not happen, the apologizing spouse stinks and says something along the lines of: “I have just apologized! What more to you need me to do?! Why can’t you just accept it and move on?!”

The thing is, you can ask your husband or spouse for their forgiveness, but you can not FORCE them to forgive you. Whether they do or not is their own decision.

So don’t expect anything from your partner right now.

It’s true, you’re making yourself vulnerable and yes, it might feel excruciating being fulfilled by the silence or angry words of your spouse. This truly is the HARDEST part about saying “I’m sorry”.

So avoid acting defensively AT ALL COSTS, despite the fact that this may be your first instinct — as it will reverse the good you have done by apologizing.

And now is certainly not the time to begin pointing fingers and trying to get back in your partner for whatever they have done.

All you can do now, as hard as it is, is give your spouse time to come to terms with your apology and also see for themselves that the adjustments on your own behavior. Forgiveness will come with time. How To Get Your Husband Back From An Emotional Affair

 

5. Follow your apology up with positive actions

Saying sorry is vital, but it is not sufficient on its own to cure your spouse’s hurt and move. It’s the ACTIONS that follow that really do most of the relationship repairing.

Apologies have to be backed up with positive changes in behavior, as otherwise your spouse will lose faith in you and will become more hurt and betrayed as a result.

If you have betrayed your partner in some manner, the key is to be ABSOLUTELY transparent with your spouse in future — don’t attempt to hide or cover anything up.

Keep the lines of communication open and be honest about what — where you’re, what you are doing, who you’re with, what you’re spending… EVERYTHING.

This might appear counter-intuitive, however, the simple truth is that your partner is likely to be feeling very vulnerable at the moment, and their trust in you has been shattered. So in order for their trust to be regained, you need to leave literally zero doubts in their mind.

And keep in mind, one big gesture of chocolates and flowers once you have messed up is nice, but it is not likely to have the identical impact as continuous small steps to improve your behaviour and reveal your partner how much you value them.

Even if your partner doesn’t take your apology straight away, DO NOT GIVE UP. By continuing to show how sorry you’re through loving actions, you have the hope of regaining their trust and love. How To Get Your Husband Back From An Emotional Affair
