Are you ready to learn from your mistake and make amends? Here’s how to repair the damage you’ve caused.
1. Apologize Without Giving Excuses
The first thing to do when you’ve really messed up is to own up to your mistake. This means giving a heartfelt apology without following it up with a “but” or any kind of excuse as to why you did whatever it was you did. No matter what triggered your mistake, the fact is that you have to own your transgressions. You’re the one who acted inappropriately, meanly, thoughtlessly—insert your own adverb here. Now’s not the time to point fingers, especially at the person who you’ve wronged. If you do, you’ll be escalating the situation rather than diffusing it.
2. Ask How You Can Make Things Better
Be ready to fix whatever you’ve messed up—however you can. Make it better and actively participate in the solution. Don’t expect the other person to just get over it or for the situation to simply blow over. When you mess up big time, it’s up to you to take action to make things better. And whatever you end up doing, do it sincerely. If the person you’ve wronged feels like you aren’t being sincere, they won’t feel appeased. In fact, you might make them angrier.
3. Let Them Heal on Their Own Terms
Part of making things better is allowing the other person to heal however they need to. This may mean stepping back from the relationship for a while to give the person space. It may mean going to counseling together to talk to a neutral party about how to repair your bond. However the person needs to heal, allow them to do what they need to do without your interference or suggestions, no matter how well-intentioned they may seem. If you interfere in their healing process, you’ve messed up again!
4. Turn Inward
Take the situation as a good opportunity for you to look inside and evaluate why you acted the way you did. What triggered you to mess up in a way that hurt someone? Take accountability in order to understand what’s going on with you. Are you feeling jealous? Are you lashing out because you’re unhappy? Major screw ups happen but they rarely occur in a vacuum. Examine the circumstances surrounding this situation and think about how your feelings contributed to this tense situation.
5. Learn and Grow From Your Mistake
Yes, you messed up, but that doesn’t mean you have to repeat this mistake. Instead, understand what you can do next time to prevent something major like this from happening again. Not all mistakes are preventable, but you can put the odds in your favor by improving your self-awareness. Being mindful of your actions and learning to think about the possibilities before you act can at least give you the space to consider what may or may not happen in a given situation.
