Do you feel bad about yelling at your partner for no apparent reason? Are you upset because you spoke to him or her in a loud voice? Do you realise that fight was a waste of your time? If you answered yes and are now wondering how to make up for that rude behaviour, there isn’t much you can do.
First and foremost, it is critical that you learn to control your emotions. While your partner should never say it, picking unnecessary fights or being rude to each other can make you feel bad at times.
So, the next time you experience mood swings or are suffering from PMS, it is critical to notify your partner and apologise as soon as possible.
If you were looking for ways to apologise for your inappropriate behaviour this morning, here are a few suggestions.
A simple sorry works like magic
Accepting your error and feeling bad about it is the best course of action. If you realise you made a mistake, it’s always a good idea to put your ego aside for the sake of your relationship and apologise to your partner. However, if you repeat it every time, the magical word will lose its essence and will feel more like a formality than a genuine expression of regret.
Mind your actions
If you are too shy to apologise or believe that apologising is insufficient, be mindful of your actions in the future. Make it a rule not to do the same things over and over again, no matter how angry or frustrated you are. By doing so, you are not only admitting your error, but also expressing that you are aware that you made a mistake. This will bring the two of you closer together.
Express your feelings
Consider how much your behaviour bothers you and how much it would bother your partner. So, be brave and express yourself. Explain in detail what caused you to behave in that manner or what is causing you stress. Take charge of speaking up and eliminate any awkwardness. This will help bring transparency to the relationship while also letting your partner know that everything was unintentional.
