I’m amazed at how frequently I ask my wife, Christie, if I can have a “do over.” She nearly always grants me the opportunity to be a better person, acting in a healthier way than I did the first time. In each situation it’s important to eat a healthy dose of “humble pie,” reflecting that I’m truly sorry and have learned something from the experience. I must share with her an understanding of the hurt I have caused her. How about you? Are you willing to take full responsibility for the hurt you’ve caused someone, and having done so, asked for an opportunity to make it right? Try it—it works!
