Can you say, “I’m sorry?”

Mark Tyrell, therapist, speaker and author says:  “Some people do not apologize, and can never admit they were wrong.  Sorry isn’t a word they can say unless they are asking you to be.

People who don’t say sorry to their partner are much less likely to ever become married, or if they do they are much less likely to stay married.  Never or seldom apologizing is a relationship crusher because one partner ends up feeling always in the wrong.”

Never saying, “I’m sorry” is a relationship crusher.  My friend says that her husband has never said, “I’m sorry,” and she is filled with anger, frustration, and resentment.  She can never tell her side of the story and have herself and her story validated.

Personally, I think that being able to acknowledge that one has made a mistake is a sign of strength and a healthy sign.

Mark continues, “Romance, passion and good Italian food may bring couples together, but compromise and respect will keep them there; so, say, “I’m sorry.”

Say “I’m sorry”. . . so you won’t be sorry later.
