Apology Tips

Most of us do something at sometime in our lives for which we need to apologize. Here is a brief way to remember how to apologize. I use the word, ACTS, as a memory device.

The “A” is for acknowledging the pain the other person is experiencing. The “C” reminds you to confess your part in causing the pain. Be concrete and complete. The “T” means to tell what you are going to do differently. The “S” is for you to start new behaviors or do what you said you would do differently.

When you mess up you need to fess up and “ACTS” will help you do it effectively. Aplogizing when you are wrong or have hurt someone is an important part of your REAL marriage.
