I’m sure you’ve experienced the frustration of hearing an excuse when you try to point out a problem to your boyfriend.
Sure, there are times when it’s perfectly valid to offer an excuse. I mean, come on…sometimes the traffic really was horrible. Or you legitimately didn’t have time to call.
But most of the time we make excuses to protect our egos. Rather than admitting we made a mistake, we justify poor choices.
That strategy just doesn’t work well in relationships. Because a pattern of excuses will drive a wedge between you and your partner faster than the Kardashians can spin family drama into a new reality show.
Relationship excuses erode trust.
Just like you, your guy can tell when he’s not getting the full story.
So, before you give your guy an excuse, ask yourself the following two questions.
- DO I SOUND LIKE A BROKEN RECORD?
- IS THERE ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THIS EXCUSE?
Let me show you why these two questions will send your relationship in the right direction.
