What to do when you make a big mistake in a relationship

In a relationship nobody is perfect, we all do make mistakes but the ability to accept your mistakes and take the responsibility of it, is what keeps the relationship strong and happy. Because in every relationship there must be a problem of one thing or the other but what makes it a good relationship is the forgiveness and understanding that is there. Now to answer the question. “What to do when you make a big mistake in a relationship”


What to do when you make a big mistake in a relationship


  1. Have a re–think over the relationship.

First of all think about the whole relationship and ask yourself what you really want in the relationship. Relax your mind and know if you are really the cause of the problem, or the relationship itself. Why I said so is this, if truly you are the problem then you can move on to know what to do and make your partner forgive you.

But if is the relationship itself that is the problem then is a waste of time looking for what to do because there may be another problem.


  1. Ask for forgiveness.

Since you are the cause of the mistake in your relationship, then go to your partner and ask for forgiveness and don’t expect him or her to forgive you easily or immediately, but instead you try to prove it to him or her that you are truly sorry.


  1. Avoid repeating the same mistakes.

Since you are truly sorry for your actions, then try to make amends of your mistakes, and try not to repeat it again. Repeating the same mistakes shows that you are purposely doing that and that will only disorganized your relationship.


  1. Avoid pride.

You shouldn’t wait for your partner to apologize to you because he or she is the cause of the problem.

This issue is called pride, reason is because, sometimes you may think that she or he is the cause of the problem, but in other way round you will realize that you are the cause of that problems. You know, everyone is right on his or her own view, it depends on how you understand yours.

So pride of saying, am not supposed to ask for forgiveness, because am not the cause of that problem will definitely caused a very big damage in your relationship, it will make you to continue to be making mistakes all the time.

In life, it is common that men are the ones that can easily apologize to their women, not because that they are men, but it’s because they are the people that the women believe that they know better than them, and they are the head of the family. Why then, are you as a man finding it difficult to act as man, to ask for the forgiveness if your partner is not happy.

Don’t see yourself as a hard vessel, see yourself as the head of the family and act as one.

Two wrong they say, does not make a right. One must surrender and the other will then accept.

Be Wise.
