185: Apologize Like You Mean It

Apologies are more than just a tool to help you and your partner move on from a difficult situation. They’re a way to mend an emotional hurt and keep a relationship strong.

But how you apologize is extremely important.

Simply saying, “I’m sorry”, can feel insincere and often make the relationship conflict worse. Listen to today’s show to learn how to apologize like you mean it.

In this episode we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Learn why apologizing is not a one-way street.
  • Understand that there will be conflict in your relationship and that we must learn to repair rather than prevent conflict.
  • How the receiver of an apology can help the relationship move forward after a transgression.
  • Mindfully apologizing instead of simply saying, “I’m sorry”, without really meaning it.
  • And much more!

Psychologist, author, speaker and Buddhist sex therapist, Dr. Cheryl Fraser, has a rare combination of academic credibility, humor, straight-talk, and life-changing advice. Dr. Cheryl has helped thousands of couples jump start their love life and create passion that lasts a lifetime.
