Today I want to utilize a brief article from growthtrac.com that is linked above. I think it is a wonderful and easy way to understand how to apologize. It is exactly what any husband needs to know. A foreign husband and Filipina wife, perhaps a good deal younger than he is, is a union that may result in more opportunities for conflict that leads to the need for an apology.
Please subscribe to Casting Beyond The Sea for helpful advice for foreigners in a relationship with a Filipina or who would like to be. I want to make marriage great again. Going where you’re wanted might mean considering a woman from the Philippines. You already know there will be many times you will do something or say something that causes hurt to the Filipina, because men and women have a tendency to do that, because we are sinners. And there are times you’ll say something that upsets someone and you don’t know why it would.
Apologizing requires more than saying “I’m sorry.” This article explains why that is and the best way to apologize. What tends to get me in trouble are my words. Sometimes it is the tone of my voice and other times, all I have to do is make a certain face and I know I am in trouble. I have been told that sometimes when I’m mad, I look like I could kill someone and I believe that. I am an emotional person and don’t like to hold anything in. What someone like me needs to learn to do is to “get it out” with the right words, not the wrong ones, focusing on the problem, without doing it in a way that makes someone feel like they are being attacked. Here are the five apology lanuages from the link above that I will talk about. Language
#1: Expressing Regret Language
#2: Accepting Responsibility Language
#3: Making Restitution Language
#4: Genuine Repentance Language
#5: Requesting Forgiveness
