Always fight before you say, “I’m sorry. »How often do you feel that people are unfair to you? Then you have a problem.
When you find it hard to apologize, then you have to face the spirit of pride. Only you can constantly face this spirit and start forming a new habit by replacing it with a spirit of humility.
Only you can heal yourself. A proud person will always see a humiliating humiliating situation. He will prefer to argue, wanting the other person to understand. And if the person doesn’t understand, you get hurt and angry. But your healing begins the day you realize that you are not perfect and that accepting a mistake that is pointed out to you is part of growing up. The ability to apologize is the start of developing a humble spirit.
Heal yourself, develop your human spirit by allowing the spirit of humility to become a central part of your human spirit.
A lot of people keep saying that their spouses don’t know how to apologize and if so, they do it without feelings attached. It was as if they had never apologized.
At the start of my marriage to Carol, we sometimes had a hard time apologizing to each other. But, as we became more Christlike and more mature, we trained our human minds to learn to apologize without struggling to do so. Make sure your child apologizes properly without struggling so that they don’t carry this into their marriage and future relationships.
Very importantly, couples should learn to say “I’m sorry” not only when the quarrel has started, but also to prevent the matter from escalating. Remember, “Better safe than sorry. “
In fact, for some it is more painful and demeaning to apologize to a younger person even though they know they are wrong. Peter (not her real name) found this demeaning especially when the younger started to feel happy.
During his year of youth service, he met another member of the corps, who never had a problem saying, “I’m sorry.” He will also show up the next day looking confident and easily joking around with the person he apologized to the day before. He never felt embarrassed or angry, even when he had to say, “I’m sorry” for what was not his fault. His parents raised him well. In fact, he “followed peace with all men” (Hebrews 12:14). It earned him more respect. He’s always been a happy boy. Peter writes: “I envied him, wondering how he could let go of his pride. It was something I couldn’t bring myself to do. Until now, Peter still believed in winning business through arguments like a lawyer in court. He goes on to say, “But now I know better that it is the mature person who apologizes in a dispute.”
Don’t see the apologetic person as the weakest person. It is a sign of maturity. One of the things we do in our home on purpose is to force each of our children to know how to apologize to each other, no matter who is older. Whenever we found out about any overreacting, an apology was asked for overreacting. With this training, we prepare them for their spouses and society so that they can live happier lives. If you are an adult and find it hard to apologize, it is a sign that you are an immature person occupying an adult body. Humble yourself and grow up so you can enjoy a better life. I love you.
