Do you Apologize to your Partner? Types of men Who Apologize!
As many people already know, there are many kinds of men here and there. There is the mean one, the jealous, the tender, the stupid and the proud…etc
All humans are prone to committing mistakes and sometimes blunders so we are all sinners in one way or another. But the question is: are we ready to forgive and be forgiven? I know that we all make mistakes but I also know that those who repent and acknowledge their faults are fully excused. In this topic, I’m going to discuss the proud type of men whose pride and ego prevent them from apologizing specially to their partner!
There are types of men who think that apologizing to women is demeaning in way and will hurt their pride to do so. This “man” doesn’t yield nor admit his fault despite that deep down he knows he is mistaken. On the other hand, he resorts to other ways to express his “sorry” like talking to her in a smooth tone or bringing her something she likes. By doing this, his partner may understand his endeavors of reconciliation and tries to “accommodate” with these indirect apologies so life can go on. He made an effort and she understood but this is not enough! This man has to understand that to apologize is as brave as any other manly behaviors because it doesn’t humiliate him in anyway. On the contrary, this healthy act will make him even stronger and will let him have inner peace.
There is another kind of men who don’t admit their mistakes to their partner or to themselves. Fact is, this kind is sick and need immediate attention. The man here thinks that he is inerrable, and above mistakes. Actually, according to him, he is always right and always correct in everything he does and he is infallible beyond doubts. His dignity prevents him from apologizing to anyone specially to women! This man might have a patient woman to care for and friends to be around but not for so long as he will find himself alone eventually. In my opinion, he needs counseling and professional assistance. For this man if you happen to read this, know that no one is perfect and YES, you make mistakes because you’re a human being so it wouldn’t kill you to see faults in you. It wouldn’t kill you to start apologizing and in time, you’ll harvest the benefits of this. Don’t think that people will underestimate you because you’re apologizing or will think that you’re not a man enough. Actually, it’s NOT manly to not apologize!
There is also another type of men but a fun type in a sense that they don’t acknowledge their mistakes in the beginning. They keep procrastinating until they’re pushed to apologize at the end. This “man” apologizes coyly and throws the “sorry” word from the tip of his tongue, with a wrinkle on his forehead and a small pout. Dignity again is behind this modest apology but this is also not enough. It’s true that this man might be considered childish but still his apology is not complete because he doesn’t mean it. The partner may accept it reluctantly but she won’t be fully content. He has to say it and to mean it and to show that he really made a mistake otherwise; this is going to be a half apology.
The last type of men is the best! He is the sensitive and tender man. He courageously admits his faults with no fear whatsoever. He derives his manhood, his strength from the strength of his mutual relation with his partner. He apologizes from the core of his heart and he says sorry with all the love there is wishing that she can find it in her heart to forgive him. This man actually is so adorable and his partner loves him and understands him well and let go of his little mistakes. She can not help but forgive him because he showed true remorse provided that he is honest regarding his apology.
To those who find it hard to apologize regardless of the reasons, there are alternative means of saying sorry. It’s so important not to ignore this aspect if you want a healthy relationship. If you get angry and can’t apologize due to your PRIDE, offer her a flower later since flowers have magical effect. Pick the right flower and the right color and give it to your partner. Another way is when you leave the house while angry, don’t come back empty handed. Pick up a simple gift and offer her a romantic dinner somewhere. Listen to all her criticism and don’t complain because you started it. Be flexible when it comes to criticism not only from your partner but from your friends or colleagues. This is how we learn about our hidden faults in ourselves which can be seen by others only and good luck!
