Anyone who is tolerant and can deal unemotionally with a rupture with the accompanying over reaction and insulting behaviors can learn to do it.
It has to be coupled with boundaries—firm boundaries. What is a firm boundary? Your mate wants you to admit that you were 100% wrong. You know that would be a lie. You need to sweetly refuse. Repair is based on you acknowledging the role you played in the interaction going down hill, not letting them shift blame or devalue you. That would be appeasement, not repair and just reinforce the person’s narcissistic strategy.
