How to Make a Beautiful Apology

If you grew up with a lot of childhood crap, you probably know a thing or two about broken down relationships! And sometimes, sometimes, it’s we who did the breaking. Or at least played a part in it. If you have any apologies you’ve been meaning to give, but weren’t sure how, this is the video for you. Would love to hear your feedback in the comments section.

Oh, and by the way…

Are you ready to learn more strategies to recover from trauma and change your life? I’m pleased to announce my new course, “Healing Childhood PTSD” , is open for registration. It’s a self-paced course with 32 videos about how PTSD happens, what it does to us, and how ordinary people can begin healing and connecting again, whether or not they have access to professional help.  You can learn more and register here.

    I appreciate this. I’ve written and spoken a lot about apologies. We don’t get it most of the time. I use the 3 A’s – Acknowledge (name it, take responsibility), Apologize (no excuses, no blaming, recognizing I’ve hurt them), and Amends (offering to do what it takes within reason to make it right – the offended person is in charge of this process). Thanks for putting this out there, I’m going to share it!
