“Admit your mistake! It’s your most empowering choice.” ©Jane Powell – Meditations for Women
Yes you are human and subject to making mistakes or errors in judgement. Our spouse, just like us, will make mistakes. How you respond to their actions will decide if this is just a hiccup or World War III for your marriage!
Responding to mistakes
When our spouse err in judgement, choices have to be made. You can allow your emotions to rule and react emotionally or you can decide to listen and devise a strategy that is beneficial for your marriage. Wait, there is another option, you can let the mistake cripple you & your marriage. Yes, you have choices.
The most loving choice would be to talk and find a solution to the problem. Mistakes are really life lessons. Take a clear unemotional look at the situation.
Dissect it to gain a greater understanding of what caused the mistake.
How to respond to mistakes
2. Quickly & decisively
3. Accept that your spouse owned up to the mistake
4. Support your spouse on making positive strides
5. Truly forgive
Mistakes will happen. Don’t make your spouse feel as if they cannot make mistakes. No one is perfect.
Remember you will make mistakes so give your spouse the same treatment you would want them to give you when you make a mistake!
