Apologies Must Be Seen - Not Just Heard

We've all heard the saying, "Actions speak louder than words." This is so true when it comes to apologies.

When a loved one apologizes for their behavior, it's a healthy thing for us to accept it and forgive them. Forgiveness benefits us even more than the other person by freeing us from bitterness. But we also need to see that the apology is more than just words.

If our partner apologizes and changes their behavior, then it's an authentic apology. We can move forward in our relationship with optimism. But if our partner apologizes and yet continues the offending behavior, then their apology doesn't really mean much. And it might be time to for us to take some action, too.

If our partner falls back into the behavior they apologized for, it doesn't necessarily mean we need to leave. But we do need to hold our partner accountable. We can accept our partner's words, but we need to "listen" to their actions too.
