Much of a successful relationship involves properly apologizing to your partner and repairing the relationship. Relationships are not necessarily about preventing disagreements and arguments, but apologizing and moving forward positively. Listen to today’s show to learn how to apologize the right way!

In this episode, we discuss relationship advice topics that include:

  • Why simply saying you’re sorry is usually not enough
  • The five apology languages that you and your partner will likely fall into
  • Blame and its role in apologizing
  • How to communicate if you are desiring an apology from someone not giving it
  • How to make your apology sincere
  • And much more!

Dr. Jen Thomas is a TED speaker, psychologist and author. She enjoys teaching what to say when challenging conversations arise at work or at home. Today’s world requires that you know the essentials of successful apologies. Simply saying you’re sorry is usually not enough. Dr. Jen helps people like you turn bad situations into good outcomes based on your love and apology languages. She is one of a handful of approved presenters for Gary Chapman’s #1 New York Times best-selling book series “The Five Love Languages.”
