Today I want to talk about forgiveness and apologizing.
You know, according to Gary Chapman who is the creator of the 5 Love Languages, he says that each of us also has an apology language. How cool is this?
So, once you can actually learn what your apology language is and your partner's apology language, you guys are pretty primed for success if there is ever any kind of emotional or verbal wound that you cause one another.
Have you ever noticed that sometimes if you and your partner get in a big fight and you're saying, "I'm so sorry. I'm so sorry." And they just can't hear it. It doesn't do anything. Guess what? Their apology language may not include the words "I'm sorry." It may be "I can't believe I did that. I will never do that again."
It's really interesting to know that we actually have an apology language. So, what I want you to do is to take 30 minutes out sometime this week, hope online, Google: The Apology Language or 5 Apology Languages and take the quiz. It's free. It takes like 5 minutes.
Print out your results that get emailed to you. You and your partner can both do this and sit down together and talk about your apology languages. I'm telling you this is going to change the way that the two of you reconnect and come together after there has been a conflict and then an attempted apology. You create this amazing environment for forgiveness to actually happen.
So, go check it out and once you guys have these results and you start the conversation and if you just get stuck, call me! This is where I come in. This is where we can really get you both on the same page so that you can hear the apologies, accept it and move towards forgiveness.
Sometimes, we just need a little help. And if that's you, call me! We'll do this together. That's my jam! Alright, thanks so much for watching and I'll see you next week. Buh-bye!
