To Get Husband Back
Sorry can be the HARDEST thing to say for your partner — I am sure you agree!
By saying this, you’re admitting that you have messed up and have hurt among the people that you love the most. It is never simple.
But the thing is, we are all human and most of us make mistakes. And unfortunately, sometimes we make mistakes which really hurt our spouses.
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 nearly “too much” to apologize for.
It is true that the deeper the hurt, the longer the healing process will require.

5 Step to Say “I’m Sorry” and Really Mean It. To Get Husband Back
1. Forgive yourself
You could be thinking something like: “How in the world could I ever forgive myself?” Or “How do an apology begin with ME?”
However there are several reasons why it’s necessary to try to make peace with yourself once you have made a mistake.
First of all, dwelling on thoughts that are remorseful and self-loathing will use all of your emotional energy up.
This is NOT going to be helpful for you or your marriage, as it keeps the focus on the issue, rather than what you can do to FIX it. If you can accept the mistake you have made, you’ll be able to then focus your energy on what you could do in order to compensate for it.
Allow me to be clear here. By forgiving yourself, you are not clearing yourself of any blame… You openly admit that you’ve made a mistake.
However, you’re also acknowledging that the behavior you’ve done wrong does not mean you are a terrible person as a whole and you have the chance to be your very best self from now on…
2. Apologize to your spouse and accept full responsibility
When it comes to stating sorry, the earlier the better. However, an apology needs to be said with feeling and genuine sincerity to be effective.
So you will need the time to calm down until you confer with your partner, take this moment. An angry or sarcastic apology will only make the situation even more worse.
As hard as it is, look into your spouse’s eyes once 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 had been looking forward to going out and how disappointed and hurt you must’ve felt when I came home late”.
Last, never never NEVER say “I’m sorry” and follow this up with a “but” or an excuse.
For instance: “I am so sorry I forgot we had plans for dinner tonight. I understand how much you had been looking forward to heading out and how disappointed and hurt you must’ve felt when I arrived home late. However, the reason I forgot about dinner is because YOU did not remind me this morning. You know I’m busy with work and find it difficult to keep track of what is happening occasionally”.
This is going to make your apology meaningless, and even indicate that you are BLAMING your partner — which is just going to push them farther away.
So take full responsibility for the actions… Do not try to downplay your mistake to make yourself feel better (because believe me, it won’t work!) And concentrate only on YOUR actions, not your spouse’s. To Get Husband Back
3. Make promises for the future
Come up with a plan to make certain your mistake will not be repeated in the future and convey this to your spouse. Just make sure any promises you make could be followed upon.
“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 ever tries to get in touch with me.
I’m pleased to give you open access to all of my account and my phone if that would be helpful to you|If this would be helpful to you, I am pleased to offer you access. I promise to keep in regular communication with you and from now on I will always be at home when I say I will.
I truly want to make this work and will do whatever is needed. I will clear my schedule outside of work so that I could spend as much time with you as possible — as much time as you’re comfortable with right now.” To Get Husband Back
4. Accept your spouse’s reaction
A frequent assumption that a partner often makes is that as soon as they have apologized, their spouse or spouse should stop being sad or angry and give them forgiveness.
And if 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’t you just accept it and move on?!”
The thing is, you can ask your husband or wife for their forgiveness, but you can’t FORCE them to forgive you. Whether they do or not is their own choice.
So don’t expect anything from your partner right now.
It’s true, you are making yourself vulnerable and yes, it might feel excruciating being met by the silence or angry words of your spouse. This truly is the HARDEST part about saying “I am sorry”.
Therefore avoid acting defensively AT ALL COSTS, even though this may be your first instinct — since it will undo the good you have just accomplished by apologizing.
And now is certainly not the time to begin pointing fingers and trying to get back in your spouse for whatever they’ve done.
All you can do right now, as hard as it will be, is give your partner time to come to terms with your apology and see for themselves that the changes in your behavior. Forgiveness will come with time. To Get Husband Back
5. Follow your apology up with positive actions
Saying sorry is important, but it isn’t sufficient on its own to heal your partner’s harm and move. It is the ACTIONS that follow which actually do most of the relationship fixing.
Apologies need to be backed up with favorable changes in behavior, as otherwise your partner will lose faith in you and also will end up more hurt and betrayed as a result.
If you have betrayed your spouse in some way, the biggest key is to be utterly transparent with your partner in future — don’t attempt to hide or cover up anything.
Keep the lines of communication open and be fair about everything — where you’re, what you are doing, who you are with, what you are spending… EVERYTHING.
This might seem counter-intuitive, however, the truth is that your partner is likely to be feeling very vulnerable right now, and their trust in you has been shattered. So in order for their trust to be recovered, you have to leave literally no doubts in their own mind.
And keep in mind, one huge gesture of chocolates and flowers once you’ve messed up is nice, but it’s not likely to get the identical effect as constant small actions to improve your behaviour and show your spouse how much you appreciate them.
Even if your spouse doesn’t take your apology straight away, DO NOT GIVE UP. By continuing to demonstrate how sorry you’re through loving actions, you have the hope of regaining their love and trust. To Get Husband Back
