We try to over compensate. Plead for forgiveness and ask the other person what we can do make them trust us again. That’s usually how we try and make up.
Occasionally, we don’t act like we’re guilty. That can happen because either we’re extremely guilty and it hurts every time we think about it OR if we don’t believe we are at wrong at all.
