I think love/relationships is all about treating each other carefully and being especially careful about our reactions. Using Created Understandings or more commonly called “agreements” to assist in this process.
Preparing for the failure or lack of perfection during this process is imperative and
so creating our first understanding, around an apology process, is a good idea.
I suggest using a 3 step apology process where we state:
- What we did
- Why we did it, and
- What we would do next time
But you might have a better understanding to suggest?
