I said "sorry" to my partner last weekend. I was unpleasant on him. I was rather nervous and didn't feel well. So I hadn't enough patience to listen to his speech to the end.

Before yesterday I did a mistake and I apologized to him. Well, after apologizing I felt happy.
Whenever I do mistakes I always apologize for them.
