I'm not one to hold grudges and certainly know how to pick my battles but when my boyfriend does something that truly hurts my feelings I have a hard time shaking it off.
I'm not saying I hold onto it and pull it out during a fight 2 weeks later. But it takes me at least a few days for me to get over the pain even after he said sorry.
Sometimes sorry try just isn't enough but I know it has to be or the relationship is dead in the water.

I apologize and then give them space
I know what you're saying about how an apology isn't necessarily enough to fix something. it usually takes me a few hours to get back into a good head space. I've worked on this though but reminding myself that my partner doesn't have bad intentions... they are human and make mistakes and should be forgiven for those mistakes1
