We all make mistakes in a relationship. Although, some of those mistakes hurt more than others. The first step towards betterment is realizing that you have made a mistake and owning it. Moreover, when you own up to your mistake, you have to make sure that you never make it again.
Apologizing without making yourself a better person is straight-up manipulation. One more thing to remember when apologizing to your partner is that you should apologize from the heart and not justify your mistake, or it will hurt your partner even more.
If you have hurt your girlfriend or wife, you must make it up to them, and saying sorry is the first step to making them feel better. If they do not forgive you right away, you need to apologize more and give your partner time to process the apology. Do not expect to be forgiven right then and there.
