You know when you start talking and all of the sudden, you say something and you're counterpart gives you an expression that reads, "oh my gosh, I can't believe you just said that?"
Well, all of us aren't pro's at recovering from those moments.
I want to start off by stating that I am not a psychologist (obviously), nor do I claim to be! I have simply gathered a compilation of personal thoughts and statements I have seen come from fellow passionate Type-A's, that have added to my short study! You never know, you may relate more than you think!
YOU OWE ME AN APOLOGY!
1. Wait.. did I really say something wrong? I realize this statement, in itself, makes me sound super self-centered, but most of the time I am genuinely confused about why I need to pull together an "I'm sorry." In that same breath, I'm not completely evil-spirited. I do feel bad that your feelings are hurt. I just thought I was speaking my mind... so...??
2. I can honestly debate this all day long. It's not that I don't want to kiss and makeup, it's that now debating this topic is becoming somewhat of a game for me... and I'm really good at creating my list of reasons as to why I said what I said (except I'm probably putting my foot even further in my mouth).
3. Does this make me look weak? Does it mean I lost the fight if I apologize first? Are you going to hold this against me, later on down the road? Probably not, because you're most likely a really nice Type-B who says "I'm Sorry" with no difficulty.
4. Okay so maybe I did do something wrong... Now I am just super embarrassed and my guilt is attacking me like a plague. Like I said before, I'm not evil. I'm just a little stubborn!
Saying "I'm Sorry", is undoubtably the most difficult two words to be spoken in the human language (I can debate I'm Sorry vs. I love you any day). It is a true test of strength and character, and I am glad to admit, every time I let that simple phrase slip from my lips, I am overall a happier person.
So if you're anything like this article, there is room for you to be a little happier, too!
