Improve Your Emotional Intelligence: Apologize


Wishing for better relationships? Apologizing is essential, however, apologizing is almost impossible for some. Why? They might not realize they have done wrong; but they also might be threatened by the idea they did wrong.

What to do if that is you? Apologize when you know you did wrong.

When you think you did not wrong, apologize anyway. “I’m sorry I hurt you, I’ll try to do better” This doesn’t admit wrong doing, but when people are hurt you can acknowledge the hurt and promise to do better by understanding that person’s sensitivities a bit better.

When you like, comment or share this post, you are practicing kindness. Practicing kindness also improves your Emotional Intelligence.

Thank you for all you do.



  1. I love your recommendation that we apologize anyway, even when we don’t think we’re in the wrong, Katherine. Sometimes not acknowledging another person’s emotions can be worse than the original injury itself, whatever the cause. Thank you for this thought-provoking reminder!
