20 Ways to ask for forgiveness from your lover in a relationship.
As the saying goes, “to err is human.”
We all make mistakes, it’s part of our nature. However, sometimes those mistakes can lead to a lot of problems in our lives, particularly when it comes to relationships. You love your girlfriend, and being with her is the best thing that’s ever happened to you.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t save you from getting into trouble when you say or do the wrong thing that makes her upset.
For the most part, women tend to look beyond the surface to find the subtext of everyone’s words and actions.
While this can be an excellent skill for various situations, it can also lead to conflict when she takes things that are otherwise innocuous and puts a negative spin on them.
You showed up late for your anniversary date – it’s because you don’t care as much about your relationship as she does.
You forgot to do something she asked you to do – you don’t listen, and you don’t respect what she has to say.
How many times have you gotten into situations like these?
How often have you done something much worse and more malicious?
Regardless of the how, she’s mad at you and now is the time to make amends.
But how can you do more than just say “I’m sorry?”
An apology is meaningless if it’s empty, which means that you have to dig deeper to show her your true feelings.
Fortunately, we’ve come up with a list of sayings that do just that.
Next time you’re in the doghouse, think of these lines.
However, don’t say them just for the sake of apologizing.
Find the one that fits your situation and mean it.
I didn’t think when I acted. I made a huge mistake, and I can’t apologize enough.
I want to show you how much you mean to me, and today I made you think otherwise. For that, I am so sorry.
If I could turn back time and do things differently, I would. Not so you wouldn’t be mad at me, but so I could take the time to do it right.
I understand that you’re upset with me, and I will do whatever it takes to make it up to you.
I’m not sure why you’re mad at me, but I want to understand. Can you talk to me about it?
I want nothing but to make you happy. I hate myself for doing the opposite. I’m sorry.
I can’t believe that I did such a stupid thing. I will remember my mistakes so that I won’t make them again.
I know I messed up – can you ever forgive me?
I wish I wasn’t such a screw-up. I totally deserve your anger and frustration. I sometimes ask myself how I got so lucky to be with someone like you.
I will do anything it takes to make this up to you. Can I start with a glass of wine?
I know that you’re upset because it seems like I don’t care. I just want you to know that that isn’t the case. I sometimes have difficulty showing you how I feel, and I hope you can forgive me for that.
I love you so much, that it kills me to know that I made you upset. My mistakes or shortcomings are no excuse for what I did to you.
I apologize for making it seem like you’re not important to me. I will make sure that you always know how much I care about you from now on.
Your happiness is everything to me. You being upset with me breaks my heart. I hope that you understand that I didn’t mean for this to happen.
Although I’m sad that you’re angry and frustrated with me, I take solace in knowing that I won’t ever put you through this again.
I hope you know that my love for you is stronger than ever. Please don’t let my mistakes tell you otherwise.
What can I do to make things right again? I will go to the ends of the Earth if it means earning your forgiveness.
I made a mistake, and I took our relationship for granted. Your anger and frustration is a sharp reminder that I can’t do that. Thank you for showing me the error of my ways.
I am truly sorry for the pain I have caused. If it makes you feel any better, I hate myself far more than you do right now.
Even though you’re angry and upset with me right now, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. I want to fix this and grow stronger with you as a result.
