I’ve definitely found that to be true — when something has gone awry and sincere apologies take place, what results is a lot like that Japanese art of repairing cracked pottery with gold. It’s different, but beautiful in it’s own way.

Our personal practice at my house is to both apologize, even if one of us was way more in the wrong. It signals that we are putting the relationship above keeping score.
