Apologizing to an ex is not an easy task. Check out these tips to give the perfect apology!
Wait A Month
You should wait at least a month before apologizing so that you have plenty of time to process the breakup.
Apologize From The Heart
If you can’t apologize from the heart, you’re not ready to apologize.
Don’t Apologize Just To Get Him Or Her Back
You shouldn’t have a motive behind your apology.
You’re apology won’t mean anything to your ex if you end up arguing.
Apologize For Any Pain You Might Have Caused
If you recognize that you caused your ex pain, you need to apologize for it.
Apologize For The Right Reasons
You need to think about the reasons you’re apologizing to make sure you’re not doing it for selfish reasons.
Stay Calm & Be Patient
Your ex might get angry during your apology. If this happens, stay calm and wait till he or she is no longer angry.
Plan What You Will Say
Your ex will be able to tell that you put a lot of time and thought into your apology if you plan what you will say ahead of time.
Explain What Things You Did Wrong
Acknowledge that you know you did certain things wrong and explain them.
Don’t Put Any Blame On Him Or Her
Apologize for the things you did wrong, but do not bring up anything you think he or she did wrong.
Acknowledge that you know how he or she must have felt when you did certain things.
Don’t beat around the bush with a broad apology.
Apologize In Person
If you can get your ex to meet you somewhere in person, you’re apology will be much more sincere.
Make Realistic Promises
You can make promises that you will work on certain issues, but if you want to get back together with your ex, don’t promise there will never be any conflict. That’s a promise you probably won’t be able to keep.
Follow Up With Positive Changes
This will show you meant everything you said. Actions speak louder than words.
