We would like to pass along some very important communication advice. In a happy, healthy, conscious relationship sometimes “I’m sorry” just isn’t enough to resolve a hurt. At times it just seems “too easy” and can even sound trite and insincere. So our good friends and mentors, Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks, authors of the classic relationship manual “Conscious Loving,” suggest the following:
Ten Communications that Heal Relationship Conflict(note that none are “I’m sorry” or “I love you”)
10. Thank you for _____.
Try these when “I’m sorry” doesn’t seem like enough to resolve a hurt. Your relationship will grow closer and happier as a result.
