How to say I'M SORRY

How to Save a Marriage

Have you ever heard the expression,
"Love is never having to say you're sorry?"

Sometimes I wonder how such utterly ridiculous
expressions become commonly accepted. If you're
close to someone, you're going to step on their
toes occasionally. And when you hurt someone,
ESPECIALLY YOUR SPOUSE, it's important to say,
"I'm sorry."

Not only is it important to say "I'm sorry," but
it's important to say it well. Sometimes the
words alone are not enough. You've got to get
inside your spouse's heart, feel their pain, and
in order for them to forgive you, they have to
feel COMPLETELY understood. Otherwise, you might
say, "I'm sorry," and your spouse might say,
"It's okay," but nothing will change. You could
be stuck in that hurt for years.

I wish for you and your spouse that you
SUCCESSFULLY move through your past hurt and that
"I'm sorry" restores your relationship the way
those 2 magic words have the power to do.

Warm regards,
