I want to ask you a question. What kind of relationship do you have with your mother? If it is a good relationship it is probably because you are speaking each other’s love language and, you apologize to each other when you do something that is not loving.
The two essentials for having long-term positive relationships is that the individuals in the relationship feel loved and appreciated and that they deal effectively with their failures. My books, The Five Love Languages and The Five Languages of Apology are designed to help you be effective in both of these skills. If your mother is alive, it’s never too late to enhance your relationship. Why not write a note of appreciation to your mother this week. She’ll be shocked that you wrote in July and not simply on Mother’s Day.
