If you don’t learn how to apologize, you will likely end up repeating the harm that led to the need for an apology in the first place. We’ve seen this recently with a number of highly visible people. This isn’t surprising since, like so most aspects of relating to others in a healthy way, apologies aren’t something we’re taught how to do. However, I do find the blundering of the apology particularly ironic with those in the self-help space because the root of a meaningful apology is in personal growth. We all make mistakes. You don’t know what you don’t know, so mistakes are necessary for us to learn to do better. And that is the key… learning to do better.
How willing are you to learn to do better? To BE a better human?
In this episode of Unlimited, I’m exploring the mindset and action of a meaningful apology.
Some of what I’ll cover in this episode include:
- When not to apologize
- Saying “it’s okay”, when it’s not okay
- Self-serving apologies vs healing apologies
- Humility vs Humiliation
- Creating space for learning and personal growth
- Setting healthy boundaries
