Leading Authority in Treatment of Narcissism and Emotional Abuse

EPISODE 6: Good vs Bad Apologies

Does your spouse say things like, “I’m sorry if I hurt you. I didn’t intend to hurt you. I said I’m sorry, why can’t you get over it?”  These are all examples of a bad apology. While narcissists are certainly guilty of this, it happens in all relationships.  Unfortunately, society has reduced the concept of an apology to a mere formality of saying  “I’m sorry” so that the person who has been wronged can get over it and move on.  In this episode, Dr. Hawkins and Sharmen Kimbrough lay out what a true apology looks like, as well as how to work together towards a collaborative solution when you hit a bump in the road.
