Apologize Without Expectations
Someone is angry with me and yet he has, so far, not had the courage to tell me why. Apparently something I did, that I am unaware of, made him mad. I’ve reached out asking for an explanation, for him to tell me what he thinks I did. I am willing to listen. And I am willing to peacefully and respectfully talk through the situation so we can reach a point where we both feel comfortable again. But I am not being given the chance.
Healthy relationships are based on mutual respect. And, both parties must respect themselves enough to deal with the negative that sometimes arises in relationship. When one person in the relationship is unwilling to honestly address issues he or she has, then the other person is left helpless to do anything to resolve the situation.
It is not easy being blamed for something you are unaware you did. But when you have asked, when you are willing to do whatever it takes to heal the relationship, and you meet silence the only choice you have is to let go. Have faith the truth will come out. When it does you can make amends if you have indeed wronged someone. Until then, remember you are showing your true nature by wanting to resolve the issue. And, the true nature of the other person is being revealed too.
