How to apologize correctly. This is phrased in the context of marriage, but I think these rules of thumb are important for any kind of relationship with another human being. I struggle with a lot of these; it's a harsh, but nice, reminder to be a better person.

Everything I say comes out all wrong and I'm not trying to sound like this, I just don't know how I'm supposed to communicate and I'm sorry and I hate myself and I try to change, I really do, but I just keep messing up.
All of our personal relationships...deepen and strengthen when [we] remember to be curious about others' feelings instead of defensive. When someone says: "You hurt me" -- that's an invitation into her heart. When we respond with: "I'm sorry. I'm listening. Please tell me more" we get invited deeper. Can you imagine how much [better our relationships would be] if we could get curious about the pain of strangers instead of defensive? --Momastery
Yes. "Never Apologize." I've always wondered how someone is suppose to right the wrongs they've done. I was always taught that if you make a mistake, if you hurt someone then you should make amends, that usually means saying I'm sorry. I think this explains it pretty well.
