One way that my lover and I keep our love alive is through our conversations. We talk about everything. We talk about the weather, current events, books we’re reading, friends we have in common, friends our partner hasn’t met or doesn’t know well, the kids, work, everything. We talk about things we’re afraid to talk
From Rosalind Wiseman’s “Queen Bees and Wannabes” 1. Apologizer must have a genuine understanding of the “crime.” 2. Talk about the apologizer’s actions only. 3. No “last licks” or burying another insult within the apology. 4. Given without qualification (“I wouldn’t have done it if you had just…”) 5. Apologizer and apology must be genuine.
