Wave the white flag to signal an unconditional surrender of your heart or apology to your beloved.
Use this white flag papercraft when a disagreement has gone too long, a fight has spiraled out of control, or just a loving way to ask for forgiveness after hurting her/him.
Surrender is usually associated with losing the battle, weakness, or giving up. However, the battle is already lost if you are both distant to one another. After a fight, someone needs to make the first move to restore closeness. There is strength in surrender when it is done as a selfless act of love to move forward.
In a positive way, surrendering your heart in a relationship is a meaningful and loving sentiment. Let your sweetheart know about your devotion and trust towards her/him.
