The Journey of Preparation into Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 174: MY BAD, I’M SORRY!
Continuing the discussion on the 12 signs “HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU'VE FOUND THE ONE?” (Day 171)
It’s her fault! No it’s his fault! These are two phrases I hear unfortunately too often in couple therapy. And to be honest it’s come out of my mouth also. Because who wants to admit they made a mistake? Well your forever love does!
Today’s Lesson: It’s easy for you both to admit to mistakes.
The most intimate, successful, power couples have no problem admitting when they were wrong and fell short of treating their partner the way they deserved and wanted to be treated.
Early on in a relationship with your potential forever love is a great sign that they are the one and that you are the one for them is both of your ability to admit fault and focus on apologies and how to move forward, instead of holding grudges and sulking.
Now I'm not talking about that person who uses "I'm sorry" to get back in good graces with you only to do the same stuff over and over again. No this is for true repentance regarding a fault. The apologize and try their best not to be a repeat offender.
In this journey of preparation into singleness, marriage and intimacy with God, when you're with Mr. or Mrs. right, being right in an argument won't matter as much as working through problems together. What's more important is that you're able to disagree in healthy, emotionally intelligent, sensitive ways, and to forgive each other when the situation calls for it.
So until tomorrow #imsorry
With Beautiful Love
