Whether you are in a relationship or not, these tips will help you in improving your overall people-to-people contacts and make you a better person.
Accept your mistakes genuinely
You should always stay sincere when you apologise to your partner. Whether or not you genuinely mean what you say says a lot about what sort of respect and value you hold for your partner. Therefore, instead of trying to justify your mistakes and coming up with excuses on why you did what you did, you could at best talk about why you are apologising and what you would do to make things better.
Once your partner understand that you mean what you apologised for, he/she will try and open up the channels of communication that had been blocked for the breach of trust as a result of your actions. Keep your words in check when you argue with your partner. If you hurt him/her with your words, you can make a massive destruction to your relationship. So, be careful of the words that you choose during an argument. [Read: 6 Ways to show that you care without suffocating him]

No matter what kind of an argument you have with your partner, you should be able to give each other the confidence that you are in this together and whatever insights you offer is for the betterment of the relationship and not for your personal gains.
