Hey guys! Welcome back. When you are in a relationship there are going to be a lot of times that you have to apologize. We all mess up and make mistakes and we have to own up to them and admit when we are wrong. However, sometimes you might find yourself apologizing for things that you don’t need to apologize for. They are things that you might feel guilty for or your partner might care about that they shouldn’t. So here are five things you should never feel the need to apologize for in a relationship.
1. Your past.
We all have a past. Regardless of whether it was good or bad, we all have one. It shapes who we are and how we respond to certain things. You shouldn’t feel guilty about your relationship history, your sexual history, or any other history that you might have. It is wise to be open with your partner about your past, but you shouldn’t feel any judgement about that or feel guilty in any way. We all make decisions everyday not knowing what the future holds.
2. What you look like.
Whether you want to wear makeup or not is up to you. What you choose to wear is up to you. What kinds of things you get done to your body is up to you. It is your body and you have sole ownership of it. You should never have to apologize for what you look like or personal upkeep of any kind. If you do, it’s probably not the right relationship for you anyway, so don’t keep apologizing.
3. Mother nature.
I know it is common for many females to feel pressure to apologize for getting their period or even getting sick. Because it you have periods you know they are usually no fun and it’s hard to get going with your normal routine sometimes. So you should never apologize for that time of the month because it is normal and so is getting sick. You should have a partner who is willing to help you not make you feel guilty.
4. Your friendships.
We all have relationships outside of our romantic relationships (although you should only have one of those). But from friends to family there are other people in our lives that we spend time with and talk to. So you should never feel guilty about talking to someone or wanting to spend time with someone because it is normal and a healthy part of life.
5. Getting upset.
You are not overreacting if something hurts you or bothers you. You are allowed to not like things and it’s never something you should feel bad for. You don’t have to back down in an argument just because your partner is not responding to your anger the way you thought they would. You apologizing makes them think that they were right in the situation and they are more likely to keep doing it.
