Do you apologize after an argument, just to make peace?

Even if you don't think you were wrong, do you apologize just to make up and keep peace in the family?

I do. I can't even count the number of times that I've done it. I have my pride, but family is more important, so I suck it up and say "I'm sorry," even though in some ways it bothers me that the other person might be wrong too but doesn't want to admit it.

  • I apologize if something may have been mis-interpretted or misunderstood, like "I'm sorry if I wasn't clear when I explained that", or, "I'm sorry that you see it that way"....but if I haven't done anything wrong, I think it shows a sign of weakness to apologize, and it sends a signal that you're quite possibly a doormat. Now, if I'm definitely in the wrong and have screwed up...I'll fess up in a jiff.

  • yes i always want to be the peace maker. even if i wasn't wrong i like to apologize for the bad feelings between us or what ever the situation warrants as the reason why hard feelings are between. after all if you can't apologize and the other doesn't then you can never beginning to repair the situation and be friends again. i would never want to feel as i'm better or right over anyone else. so i make peace regardless of whose right or wrong cause it's not about that but about making peace.

  • No, I don't, unless I did or said something wrong and realise it later. My husband does the same.

  • Not if I think that I am right in the arguement I will fight it tooth and nail to get my point across.

  • I cant bring myself to apologize for something if I havent done anything wrong, or if I believe what he has done is wrong. I was that way once upon a time, but realized if I keep apologizing when Ive done nothing wrong, then he feels as though what hes saying is true or right, and if it isnt then why should I agree?

  • I do i all the time and he knows it, that's why he does not give a hoop anymore about my feelings. If you are in the right, stop it....i have to put my foot down too because i'm getting so tired of being that "thing" i turned into since i'm with him.
