How To Ask For Forgiveness & Ways To Apologize For Your Mistake » How To Ask For ForgivenessHave you inadvertently caused some pain to your partner? And is it bothering you even as it upsets him? A relationship has no place for a massive ego, so just go up to him and tender your apology, whether in person, in writing or over the telephone.

Saying sorry isn’t all that difficult. You only have to be genuine and mortified. Here are ways in which you can ask for forgiveness.

Be sincere. Saying sorry isn’t enough; you have to feel sorry too and, most importantly, you have to show that you are genuinely sorry. If your apology comes across as artificial, it’ll not salvage the situation at all; in fact, it could aggravate matters.

Own up. Accepting that you made a mistake doesn’t make you smaller, weaker or inferior. In fact, it defuses an explosive situation, pacifies the person who has been wronged or hurt, and makes you look more humane and mature.

Be honest. Why do you want to apologise? Do you believe doing so will make the discomfort in your relationship disappear, or do you feel doing so is necessary because you are sorry? Don’t do something – least of all, apologise – if you think others would like it, do it because you want to and it’s right.

Mistake/wrong/hurt have no size. Small or big, a mistake is a mistake. Even if you think it’s too petty a matter and will have no bearing whatsoever on your relationship, do apologise. It’ll lend maturity and new-found strength to your relationship.

Back it up. Regardless of what you did, you apologised. That’s enough, isn’t it? Sometimes it’s not. You have to back up the apology with actions and gestures that convey you are not just sorry but also want to make up for the wrongdoing.
Learn to forgive.

Swap places in the relationship: What if you were in your partner’s place and your partner had done the same thing you have; would you have been able to forgive? A relationship is all about mutual trust and equal give-and-take. If you want to be forgiven, then you must also learn to forgive.
