Why do I struggle with apologizing to my man?

Why do I struggle with apologizing to my man?

I rather do nice things to show I'm sorry.

He gave me money to pay the cake designer for his birthday & I underpaid her. A tiny difference but she reported the matter to him.

He accepted my apology card but insists I say the words which I refused because the card says It all.

He wants my sorry in a "genuine tone" according to him & he is not relenting. I need the silent treatment to end but he is stubborn.

Is action not better than words?
